With the completion of its LNG truck fueling station in Matthews, Mo., this month, Clean Energy Fuels Corp. concludes the first stage of what it's calling America's Natural Gas Highway,
a network of liquefied natural gas truck fueling stations to support long-haul, heavy-duty goods movement along major interstate corridors throughout the United States.

By the end of 2012, Clean Energy will have completed 70 new LNG truck fuel stations along highways that link major U.S. metropolitan areas. Many of these stations are located at existing Pilot-Flying J truck stops.

In 2013, Clean Energy plans to build 70 to 80 additional LNG fuel stations adjacent to long-haul trucking routes and around major warehouse distribution centers in North America.


Major highway segments now completed include, among others, those linking the Southwest Corridor, Los Angeles to Atlanta, The Texas Triangle, Atlanta to Chicago to Texas, and major corridors in the Midwest and Northeast.

Clean Energy noted that an iPhone app station locator will be available by the end of the year to complement its web-based locator at http://www.cnglngstations.com.

During the Natural Gas Summit, Gov. Bill Graves, president and CEO of the ATA, called the trucking industry's transition to natural gas "historic" and compared it to two other major milestones in the industry -- deregulation and the formation of the ATA.

Clean Energy's ANGH stations are in addition to the ongoing CNG station building planned for the company's traditional markets in transit, refuse, airport/taxi/shuttle and local/regional trucking, which activity accounts for 60 station projects in 2012 and is expected to account for approximately the same number in 2013.

Currently priced up to $1.50 a gallon lower than gasoline or diesel depending on local markets, the use of natural gas fuel reduces operating costs for vehicles and reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 30% in light-duty vehicles and 23% in medium to heavy-duty vehicles. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that 98% of the natural gas consumed in the U.S. is sourced in the U.S. and Canada.
