Clean Energy and Flying J Setting Up Natural Gas Filing Stations
Clean Energy Fuels Corp. said Tuesday it will build and operate natural gas fueling stations for trucks around the nation.
The company said it signed an agreement with Pilot Travel Centers LLC to place the stations at Pilot Flying J truck stops. Pilot Flying J operates more than 550 facilities in 43 states and six Canadian provinces.
Clean Energy officials said increased availability of trucks that run on natural gas has caused trucking firms to consider switching their fleets from other fuels.
Clean Energy said it now provides fuel daily for more than 18,300 vehicles, including 5,000 transit buses. It runs a methane gas production facility in Dallas and liquefied natural gas plants in Willis, Texas, and Boron, Calif.
Shares of Clean Energy rose 65 cents, or 4.9 percent, to $13.91 in afternoon trading.
