Chart Industries has announced it has been awarded a contract in the third quarter by a major oil company to build and commission 20 retail liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling stations across North America.
The 20 LNG fueling stations will be built at existing truck stop sites with the intention of adding dispensers alongside existing diesel fueling lanes. The order has been reflected in third quarter 2013 ending backlog with completion expected by the second quarter of 2015.
“After developing core technologies for vehicle fueling 20 years ago, it’s gratifying to see acceleration in fueling station deployment,” said Bill Haukoos, Chart D&S Vice President, Global LNG Products.
“We look forward to working closely with our customers at the forefront of development in the LNG market - a critical step in enhancing both nationwide infrastructure and availability of LNG.”
Roy Twymon, business development manager for Linde Energy Solutions, will be presenting results from a first-ever commercial conversion of an entire hydraulic fracturing fleet fueled by a combination of diesel and economical, clean burning liquefied natural gas.
Houston, Texas, based Thigpen Energy has selected Chart for the provision of LNG fueling equipment and supplies – with construction already underway. Earlier this week it was announced that the company’s eastern European outfit, Chart Ferox, was chosen to construct LNG filling station in Poland.
