Clean Energy has announced that its co-founder, T. Boone Pickens, a self-made Texas oil tycoon, energy entrepreneur, and long-time resident of Dallas, Texas, has sadly died at age 91.

Andrew J. Littlefair, President and Chief Executive Officer of Clean Energy, said: “Words cannot express the sadness the Clean Energy family and myself feel at the loss of our co-founder, leader and friend. I worked closely with Boone for 32 years and he became a father-like-figure and true mentor to me.

“If it wasn’t for his entrepreneurial vision to bring cleaner and domestic natural gas to the transportation market, Clean Energy Fuels Corp. would not exist today. Boone continued to serve on our board for over 20 years allowing us to rely on his extensive experience as the company grew from a handful natural gas fuelling stations in California to over 500 across the country.

“We will miss his devotion, humour, generosity and most of all, love.”
