Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has released a statement claiming that it has opened its first public natural gas station in Oregon, US. The station is located on Interstate 5 in Central Point, outside of Medford, and dispenses both CNG and LNG. The station is open 24/7.
Matheson Trucking – a US Postal Service contracted carrier – is using the station during journeys from California to Seattle.
The Vice President of Operations for Matheson Trucking, Joshua Matheson, said: “The addition of this station allows us the strategic advantage of being able to rely on natural gas throughout our entire distribution system.
“With an annual fleet distance of close to 36 million miles, we are always looking for ways to reduce GHG-emissions, and being able to use natural gas, specifically for our Los Angeles to Seattle runs, will help us do just that.”
The Vice President of Sales at Clean Energy, Chad Lindholm, added: “Our natural gas fuelling infrastructure continues to grow as more and more fleets and consumers turn to natural gas.
“By opening stations like Central Point and connecting the I-5 corridor, we can offer our customers the fuel and the infrastructure they need to make the transition to alternative fuelling as seamless as possible.”
