Shell will set up 200 liquid natural gas pumps at 100 different truck stops nationwide. Shell is working with Travel Centers of America, the biggest chain of truck stops in America, to place the pumps. Forbes reports:
[James Burns, Shell’s manager of LNG transportation fuels] wouldn’t say where Shell intends to set up these pumps, but insisted that Shell aims to create a tempting value proposition for the owners of trucking fleets who are thinking about investing in trucks that run on the super-chilled natural gas. “They want to have some comfort that the fuel is available,” says Burns. “We want to be the company that provides that comfort.” In a statement, Travel Centers said the locations will be chosen with the objective of enabling LNG trucks to travel across the entire country.
