‘Gratifying to See the Pieces Come Together,’ Says Littlefair

Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) has released The Road to Natural Gas, a listing of trucking companies, refuse haulers, fleet operators, airports, municipalities and other organizations which have signed new or expanded existing agreements with Clean Energy to provide natural gas transportation fuel and other services for their vehicles and fleets.

This Clean Energy Fuels CNG station near the New Orleans Airport is one of the new ones listed in the company’s ‘Road to Natural Gas’ document.

The report includes mostly new information, including a list of recently completed stations on the firm’s America’s Natural Gas Highway project with partner Pilot Flying J, and at other interstate locations.

“After working on developing the natural gas fueling market for 15 years, it’s very gratifying to see all the pieces come together,” Clean Energy president and CEO Andrew Littlefair said in a release.

“There are natural gas engines now available for more vehicle classes, the U.S. has an abundant supply of cheap natural gas and there is a greater understanding of the economic and environmental benefits of using natural gas as a transportation fuel,” Littlefair said.

Exceeding Internal Goals

“It’s a good situation to have, but we can no longer issue a press release every time an organization makes the switch to natural gas with Clean Energy due to the volume.”

Included in the first The Road to Natural Gas edition is a listing of agreements with local transportation authorities, private refuse companies and city refuse operators, and taxi fleets, as well as “regional and national trucking companies that carry products for some of the world’s most well-known brands that are converting their vehicles and buying their natural gas fuel from Clean Energy.”

The Road to Natural Gas “includes new customers that we expect to ultimately use hundreds of thousands of gallons of natural gas fuel every month,” Littlefair said.

“I’m happy to report that Clean Energy is exceeding our own internal plans for 2012 in our core refuse, airport and transit markets.”
