The Baytown and Lafayette outlets are the second and third stations for the partnership, as the companies made LNG fuel available to trucks at Ontario, Calif. last year (F&F, May 12, 2014).

“All of our LNG lanes are ‘super lanes’ in that they are equipped to dispense LNG, diesel and DEF,” TA president and CEO Tom O’Brien said in a release.

“Because super lanes are integrated with existing fuel lanes, we do not interrupt truck traffic flow, or reduce available truck parking spaces,” O’Brien said.

‘A Lower Cost and Cleaner Fuel Alternative to Diesel’

“We now have six truck repair and maintenance facilities that perform repair and maintenance on LNG and CNG vehicles,” he added.


Also according to today’s announcement “As customer demand grows in the U.S., Shell and TA plan to open additional truck fueling lanes.” The firm had previously discussed a network of 100 stations (F&F, April 15, 2013).

Shell and Travel Centers of America have three LNG fueling outlets and are planning three more.

“We see an opportunity in using LNG as a lower cost and cleaner fuel alternative to diesel, and expect the strengthening supply chain in North America to give customers reassurance that LNG is becoming a bigger part of the transport fuel mix,” said downstream LNG Americas GM Christian Buelow.

“Shell continues to look in to the commercial opportunity of supplying LNG fuel to customers in the region – both marine and road transport customers,” he said.

Shell notes that it opened its first LNG station in Calgary in 2013, and has a second now operational in Edmonton. Shell is also the charter customer for the first U.S.-flag ship running primarily on LNG, Harvey Gulf International Marine’s Harvey Energy, now helping supply Shell deepwater platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.
