Shell Opens Its First U.S. LNG Lanes

Shell-TA LNG lanes in Ontario, Calif.Shell and TravelCenters of America (TA) opened the first of a planned network of U.S. truck stop LNG stations in Ontario, Calif. on Monday, just prior to ACT Expo.

It’s the first of 20 such facilities designed, manufactured and commissioned by Chart Industries.

The two-lane liquefied natural gas outlet is at the Petro Truck Stop south of I-10. It will support LNG trucks operated by fleets including C.R. England.

“The opening of the first U.S. LNG station signifies the early stages of a sustainable transport system that will create value for Shell – as well as for our customers,” said Shell fuels sales and marketing North America VP Elen Phillips.

“Our strategic partnership with Shell to expand the nationwide LNG fueling network is evidence of the demand for alternative fuels from commercial customers,” said Chart Distribution & Storage Americas president Bill Haukoos.

“Chart has a strong reputation for innovative, customer-focused solutions and we’ve worked extensively to design and build a station to meet Shell’s request for a new global standard in LNG fueling,” he said.

Chart said that the remaining contracted LNG fueling stations “will be built across North America in a phased approach, based on customer demand at existing truck stop sites with the intention of adding dispensers alongside existing diesel fueling lanes.”

“We will continue the progress and plan to open LNG fuel lanes at more locations this year, based on customer demand,” said Tom O’Brien, CEO of TA.

KAG, Ohio’s Kenan Advantage Group, said Monday it’s been contracted to truck the LNG fuel to the Shell LNG stations. KAG also delivers LNG to fueling facilities operated by UPS.

Shell is at Booth 1551. Chart is at Booth 1451.
