Shell and TravelCenters of America LLC (TA) to develop network of (LNG) fueling centers for road users; alongside that Shell is developing a marine bunkering infrastructure.
Shell has been working to develop the LNG for Transport market globally. Last year, they announced their intention to collaborate with TA and the finalization of that agreement is a major step toward making LNG fuels a reality for the U.S. heavy duty road customers.
Shell has also announced that it will invest in two small-scale LNG production units that form the basis of two new LNG transport corridors in the Great Lakes and Gulf Coast regions that will provide LNG to marine and heavy duty road customers. This brings the total to three planned Shell LNG production units dedicated to transport in North America.
Shell’s acquisition of Gasnor, the Norwegian LNG fuel company and the launch of the world’s first 100% LNG powered barge on the Rhine are further examples of Shell’s confidence in LNG as a fuel option for commercial customers.
