James Harger, Clean Energy’s Chief Marketing Officer, said, “With the availability of new class-8, 2010 EPA-compliant natural gas trucks from several major manufacturers, regional and national trucking operators are deploying natural gas fleets in increasing numbers. Their goals include conserving costs, adding fuel diversity, curtailing harmful emissions, and reducing America’s dependence on imported oil.”
Green Energy will use the LNG-fueled trucks to service XTO Energy, a subsidiary of ExxonMobil and major producer in the Freestone play oilfield in Freestone County, Texas. 50 vehicles will be operated as vacuum trucks, used to remove and dispose of formation water, and 10 as winch trucks, used to transport frac tanks. All vehicles will enter operation in April.
