Clean Energy Fuels Corporation has noted that the recent Railroad Commission of Texas report highlighted that CNG and LNG sales in Texas through 31 July 2014 were 220% of the fiscal year 2014 estimate.
An estimated 14,521,326 gallon-equivalents of natural gas have been sold through this period, compared to the forecasted 6.6 million gallon-equivalents.
Commenting on the achievement, Peter Grace, Senior VP, Sale and Finance at Clean Energy, said: “The use of natural gas as a vehicle fuel is taking off in Texas. We firmly agree with Texas Railroad Commissioner David Porter that there is plenty of room for growth as more fleets take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits of natural gas vehicle fuel.”
Clean Energy currently has approximately 40 public-access natural gas fuelling stations open in Texas. Milestones such as opening the Texas Triangle to natural gas fuelling and leading Texas transit agencies converting to natural gas are significant contributors to the growth in the use of natural gas as a vehicle fuel in Texas.
