Names Stabilis As a Customer as It Announces Texas Fueling Outlets via TA
Shell has named Stabilis Energy as a customer as it’s announced the opening of new liquefied natural gas fueling lanes with TravelCenters of America in Dallas and San Antonio. Station openings in Baytown (Houston) and Lafayette, La. were announced earlier this year.
TA spread the word about San Antonio last month (F&F, May 19).
The Baytown, San Antonio and Dallas stations are strategically located in the Texas Triangle, a region with heavy truck traffic, Shell said. “Heavy-duty truck fleet owners are beginning to choose LNG fuel over traditional diesel because it can be cost competitive for trucks that cover long distances,” states a release.
‘Another Step Forward’
“These stations are strategically located to support the network of interstate highways, reaching customers where they need it the most,” said Shell Fuels sales and marketing VP Elen Phillips.
“This is another step forward in providing LNG fuel supply to heavy-duty road customers in the US,” said Shell downstream LNG Americas GM Christian Buelow.
“We expect the strengthening supply chain in North America to give customers reassurance that LNG is a viable fuel alternative to diesel today. We believe in the potential of LNG fuel becoming a bigger part of the marine and road transport fuel mix and continue to look at supply opportunities in the region,” Buelow said.
