Tube Trailer-Feeding Station in New Hampshire Is a Company First,
Volume for NG Advantage Projected at More than 10mm GGEs Per Year
Clean Energy Fuels said this morning that it’s opened two more of its liquefied natural gas network stations, and that it will supply large volumes of compressed natural gas at a first-of-its-kind station in Pembroke, N.H.
The “America’s Natural Gas Highway” LNG stations in Albuquerque and in Winslow, Ariz. will provide CNG (via LCNG equipment for which all ANGH stations are designed) for 58 additional trucks being deployed by Seaboard Transport.
Seaboard will also fuel at Clean Energy stations in California, Colorado, Texas, Illinois, Ohio and Virginia. “Once fully-deployed, the fleet is forecasted to consume approximately 892,000 diesel gallon equivalents (DGEs) annually,” Clean Energy said.
‘A Gateway to the West’
“Our first CNG-powered truck recently crossed into California originating from our Oklahoma processing plant,” Seaboard operations manager Gary Ruettgers says in today’s Clean Energy release. “Now we have a gateway to the West for our CNG fleet,” he said.
The “unique,” pipeline-based Clean Energy station in New Hampshire will supply CNG to NG Advantage, which uses Hexagon Lincoln Titan and other tube trailers to deliver economical natural gas to off-pipeline customers (F&F, August 5, 2012).
The new Pembroke station, Clean Energy said today, “is expected to provide a minimum of 10-million gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs) of CNG per year to NG Advantage and fleet vehicles fueling at the station… approximately double the CNG fuel volume currently supplied by Clean Energy’s highest-volume CNG station (emphasis added).
Clean Energy also said today that it’s been awarded nine grants totaling $3.6 million for station construction and natural gas fueling infrastructure development from TCEQ, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
