Shell has expanded its LNG truck fueling with the opening of new LNG lanes at a TravelCenters of America fueling station in Santa Nella, Calif.
The new location is the second Shell LNG station in the state and is part of an expansion of the company’s alternative fuel network that included opening new fueling lanes in Texas and Louisiana earlier this year.
The Santa Nella station will provide LNG fueling service for operators out of Los Angeles up along the Highway 5 corridor.
“I am excited by the progress we have made in developing the LNG fueling network in the U.S.,” said Elen Phillips, Shell‘s vice president fuel sales and marketing for North America. “LNG is a viable fuel option for truck owners and more are making the switch to LNG.”
The company opened its first U.S. LNG fueling station in California in 2014. Since then, the network has increased to seven sites in North America.
Shell and TA plan to open additional truck fueling lanes as customer demand grows in the U.S.
“Shell is committed to developing LNG as a fuel option for marine and road transport, and we continue to look at supply opportunities in the region in balance with demand,” said Christian Buelow, Shell’s general manager downstream LNG, Americas.
