Clean Energy Fuel Corp. unveiled the first phase of its natural gas plan with the unveiling of its route plan that includes 150 new liquefying natural gas ("LNG") fueling stations along "America's Natural Gas Highway." Clean Energy Fuel Corp. has previously identified 98 locations and anticipates having 70 stations open by the end of 2012.
Major highway segments planned for early opening include those linking:
* San Diego, Los Angeles, Riverside and Las Vegas;
* the Texas Triangle (Houston, San Antonio, Dallas/Ft. Worth);
* Los Angeles and Dallas;
* Houston and Chicago;
* Chicago and Atlanta;
Additionally, a network of stations along major highways in the Midwest (Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Kansas, Oklahoma and Alabama) will serve the area's heavy trucking traffic.
The 150 stations are scheduled to coincide with the expected arrival of new natural gas truck engines for heavy-duty, over-the-road trucking.
