Clean Energy Fuels Corp. says the total volume of natural gas for transportation that the firm delivered in the third quarter represented an increase of nearly 25% over the total volume delivered during the third quarter of 2011.
Gallons delivered – including compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG) and renewable natural gas – for the third quarter of 2012 totaled 50.9 million gallons, the company notes.
For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2012, total gallons delivered was 143.2 million gallons, up from 115.6 million gallons for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011.
‘I am very pleased that we were able to deliver a record level of gallons this quarter and feel that it is a testament to the continued growth of the industry,’ says Andrew Littlefair, Clean Energy's president and CEO.
‘We will have the necessary infrastructure in place to support the transition of the heavy-duty trucking market when the desired engine technology becomes commercially available in the first half of next year,’ he adds.
