Shell announced that it was pursuing permits to produce Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) for transportation fuels to be ready by 2013, while it aims to have the fuel available for heavy-duty fleet customers by 2012 at select Shell truck stops in Alberta, Canada.
Marvin Odum, President of Shell Oil Company, said: “With an abundance of natural gas and a growing need for low-emission transportation fuels, today signals a very important step for a significant North American resource.
“As global demand for transportation fuels increases, including for LNG, Shell is well positioned to meet this demand. LNG can provide great advantages for our commercial customers as a future energy solution in transportation.”
