The station will fuel Green Energy's new fleet of 60 LNG-powered heavy-duty Peterbilt trucks, which will support Green Energy's oil production customers within a 100-mile radius of Fairfield, in the Freestone oil region of Central Texas. The trucks are anticipated to use approximately 1.2 million gallons of LNG annually.
Development of the station will begin in August 2012, and completion is scheduled for the end of the year.
Green Energy's future plans include development of additional LNG truck fueling stations in the Barnett (Fort Worth), Haynesville (Marshall), and Eagle Ford Shale (Laredo) petroleum-producing areas of Texas.
"Our company is committed to acquiring and deploying fleets comprised exclusively of LNG-powered trucks," says Roger Nevill, president and COO of Green Energy. "Together with many of our oilfield services customers, we are anxious to secure the cost-saving and clean-air benefits offered by natural gas. Another important goal for us is helping reduce America's need for foreign oil imports, and natural gas fuel is sourced domestically."
