Pact Disclosed in Clean Energy’s Road to Natural Gas, Volume IV
Clean Energy Fuels has an agreement with GE Transportation – its first for rail – to provide liquefied natural gas for a GE initiative to test LNG locomotives, according to the fourth edition of Clean Energy’s Road to Natural Gas, released Monday.
GE conducted a test using LNG in a converted dual fuel locomotive on May 24 in Erie, Pa., Clean Energy says. Fuel was provided from the Pickens LNG Plant in Texas, as was “fueling equipment and operational fueling consulting.”
“Clean Energy’s fuel deal with GE Transportation expands our relationship with a company that is highly committed to the development of a market for a cleaner-burning, domestic fuel,” Clean Energy president CEO Andrew Littlefair said in a release.
“Considerable strides have recently been made to propel America further and faster down the road to natural gas,” Littlefair said. He also cited recent word from UPS that it would add 700 new LNG tractors through 2014.

“Clean Energy will support the UPS expansion by opening multiple new stations on our America’s Natural Gas Highway,” Littlefair said.
In addition to the GE and UPS mentions, the Clean Energy (NASDAQ:CLNE) document includes a long list of natural gas fuel agreements signed since the third edition was released on February 25 (F&F, February 26).
Clean Energy VP Chad Lindholm will report on the America’s Natural Gas Highway initiative at ACT Expo in Washington D.C. one week from today.
