Pact Disclosed in Road to Natural Gas Document from Clean Energy Fuels
Clean Energy Fuels – the T. Boone Pickens company that provides much of the for the natural gas vehicles on North American roads – has a pact with GE Transportation to provide liquefied natural gas for a GE initiative to test LNG locomotives, according to the fourth edition of the company’s Road to Natural Gas, released Monday.
The relationship is Clean Energy’s first for a rail application.
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 company’s Pickens LNG Plant outside Houston. Clean Energy also provided GE with “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.
In addition to the GE mention, 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.
