Clean Energy Fuels Corp. says that in the first quarter of 2013, the company delivered a total of 49.9 million gallons of natural gas transportation fuel – compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG) and renewable natural gas (RNG). This figure represents a 14% increase over the number of gallons delivered (43.7 million) during the first quarter of last year.
‘Significant progress has taken place over the last few months in long-haul trucking's transition to natural gas,’ says Andrew J. Littlefair, Clean Energy's president and CEO. ‘The new 12-liter natural gas engines are being delivered to the truck manufacturers, shippers are requesting that their contract carriers make the switch to natural gas, and some of the biggest companies in America, like UPS, are announcing large orders of new natural gas trucks.’
The company notes that revenue for the first quarter ended March 31 was $93 million, which is up from $73.6 million for the first quarter of 2012.
