John Shepherd, managing director at GE Energy Financial Services said, “Natural gas is revolutionizing the fueling of long-haul trucking and other high-horsepower applications. With massive amounts of domestic reserves, America is facing a generational opportunity to move to a more secure, less expensive and cleaner-burning fuel. Eagle LNG Partners’ mission is to provide customers with technology and know-how to confidently make the switch.”
Through experience, technical capability and commercial expertise, Eagle LNG Partners will identify strategic US locations to develop, own and operate LNG production projects. Additionally, when required in certain markets such as oil and gas and marine, the consortium is capable of providing its customers with complete LNG solutions including transportation and delivery, on-site storage, gasification and dispensing. Eagle LNG Partners is set up to provide uninterrupted LNG supply which is critical to its customers’ operations.
Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy said, “Major companies in the long-haul trucking business have made significant announcements over the last few months about their intentions to convert their own fleets, or the third-party trucks that move their products to natural gas. Along with recent announcements by rail and marine companies, it’s easy to understand the need for a significant increase in LNG supply in the United States. We are now joining with our partners to help meet that demand.”
Eagle LNG Partners is currently considering projects in Florida, Washington, Colorado, North Dakota, Ohio and Texas. These projects would build upon existing Clean Energy and Ferus Natural Gas Fuels plants and operations, as well as previously announced Clean Energy-GE LNG projects in the Northeast and Midwest, which are expected to be operational in late 2015.
Customers of Eagle LNG Partners will be operators of high-horsepower equipment in trucking, oil and gas, rail, marine, remote power and mining who now burn diesel or fuel oil and are interested in converting to lower-cost, cleaner-burning natural gas.
