Shell and TravelCenters of America have finalized plans to build a network of liquified natural gas fueling stations.
Shell and TravelCenters of America announced Monday they have finalized an agreement to develop a U.S. nationwide network of liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling centers for heavy-duty fleet customers and plan to have the first station operational in about a year.
The plan is to construct at least two LNG fueling lanes and a storage facility at up to 100 existing TA and Petro Stopping Centers along the U.S. interstate highway system.
Construction and opening of the LNG stations will be done in a phased approach. The company expects the first of these stations will be operational in roughly one year’s time, with a priority to develop the main trucking corridors to provide the potential for the first-ever coast-to-coast LNG-fueled commercial transport network.
