Clean Energy Fuels, Ferus Natural Gas Fuels, GE Ventures and GE Energy Financial Services announced a consortium to jointly deliver liquefied natural gas in the United States.
Eagle LNG Partners will develop regional LNG projects to meet the growing demand in industries such as long-haul trucking, rail, mining, marine, and oil and gas services.
Eagle LNG Partners will also identify strategic U.S. locations to develop, own and operate LNG production projects. Additionally, when required in certain markets such as oil and gas and marine, the consortium is capable of providing its customers with complete LNG solutions including transportation and delivery, on-site storage, gasification and dispensing.
It is currently considering projects in Florida, Washington, Colorado, North Dakota, Ohio and Texas. These projects would build upon existing Clean Energy and Ferus Natural Gas Fuels plants and operations, as well as previously announced Clean Energy-GE LNG projects in the Northeast and Midwest, which are expected to be operational in late 2015.
Customers of Eagle LNG Partners will be operators of high-horsepower equipment in trucking, oil and gas, rail, marine, remote power and mining who now burn diesel or fuel oil and are interested in converting to natural gas.
