Shell’s LNG fuel is now available at two additional TravelCenters of America (TA) truck fuelling stations in Texas, US.
The stations are located in San Antonio and Dallas, and following the opening of LNG lanes in Baytown, Texas, as well as Lafayette, Louisiana, earlier this year. The Baytown, San Antonio and Dallas stations are located within the Texas Triangle, a region with heavy truck traffic.
Stabilis Energy is the first customer to fuel its LNG powered trucks at the San Antonio site.

Elen Phillips, Shell’s VP Fuel Sales and Marketing – North America, said: “I’m delighted to see LNG being offered at three stations in the Texas Triangle. These stations are strategically located to support the network of interstate highways, reaching customers where they need it the most.”
Shell and TA plan to open additional fuelling lanes as the demand for LNG fuel grows in the US. Christian Buelow, Shell’s General Manager – Downstream LNG Americas, added: “This is another step forward in providing LNG fuel supply to heavy-duty road customers in the US. We expect the strengthening supply chain in North America to give customers reassurance that LNG is a viable fuel alternative to diesel today. We believe in the potential of LNG fuel becoming a bigger part of the marine and road transport mix and continue to look at supply opportunities in the region.”
