Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE) Opens Largest LNG/CNG Truck Fueling Station In The World

Clean Energy Fuels just announced the grand opening of the world’s largest LNG/CNG truck fueling station. The new natural gas fueling station is located in California, right next to the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. With two 25,000-gallon LNG storage tanks, six LNG dispensers, and two CNG dispensers, the station will be able to provide fuel for several hundred trucks each day. The station is open to the public and was built to support the San Pedro Bay Ports’ Clean Air Action Plan and Clean Trucks programs, which aim to reduce emissions by eliminating diesel trucks in favor of trucks fueled by cleaner-burning natural gas.

In a press release, Andrew Littlefair, Clean Energy President and CEO, commented on the new fueling station:

“Clean Energy is proud to support the ports and their quest for cleaner air and a clean fuel future by building this landmark LNG/CNG truck fueling station that can provide fuel for several hundred natural gas Port trucks daily.”

He added, “We have seen demand for LNG and CNG fuel grow significantly as major trucking companies secure and deploy new natural gas-powered trucks at the ports. As demand for the environmentally-friendly fuel continues to increase, Clean Energy plans to add 50,000 gallons of fuel storage to the new station’s current capacity, as well as four more LNG/CNG fueling lanes.”
