“Truck fleets are coming up fast. We estimate 20 mobile fuelers will soon be used to supply LNG to truck fleets. More often these units require sophisticated dispensing systems,” said Tom Campbell, LNG fuel analyst at Zeus who led the survey. However, he stated that the most rapid growth market for the new fueling technology is on-land oil and gas exploration and production, with 30 units expected to be used to fuel large reciprocating engines and turbines that produce electricity for drilling and fracturing operations.
It is worth mentioning that some of the leading manufacturing companies are Linde and GE. The first has recently announced it has completed the development of a compact, modular LNG station design. Moreover, GE has unveiled its new LNG in A Box™ solution, which offers customers a standardized, modular fueling system covering an LNG production range of 10,000 – 50,000 gallons a day.
