GE, Clean Energy Fuels Partner to Expand Natural Gas Highway

SOURCE: General Electric (GE)

DESCRIPTION:

GE and Clean Energy Fuels announced a collaboration to expand the infrastructure for natural gas transportation in the United States.

The agreement supports Clean Energy's efforts in developing America's Natural Gas Highway, a fueling network that will enable trucks to operate on liquefied natural gas coast to coast and border to border.

Clean Energy Fuels will initially purchase two ecomagination-qualified MicroLNG plants from GE Oil & Gas. The plug-and-play modular units, which are designed to rapidly liquefy natural gas while minimizing a site's physical footprint, will support fueling stations along critical transportation corridors that run across the U.S.

GE Energy Financial Services is providing up to $200 million in financing for the two GE MicroLNG plants.

"GE is proud to be partnering with Clean Energy Fuels to develop natural gas infrastructure in the U.S.," said GE Chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt. "With an abundance of cleaner, more affordable natural gas here in the U.S., this is an important opportunity for GE to join Clean Energy in changing the way America drives. Its also a critical step in developing a natural gas-for-transportation fuel model that can be easily exported to other countries interested in exactly these kinds of breakthrough projects."
