GE, Chesapeake to Push NatGas for Vehicles
Tuesday, March 13, 2012
GE Oil & Gas and Chesapeake Energy Corp. have formed a partnership to facilitate the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel.
The two companies have planned a multi-year collaboration to develop and bring to market solutions that expand the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) as transportation fuels.
In the fall of 2012, GE will provide more than 250 modular and standardized compression stations, known as “CNG in a Box,” to expand access to CNG at fueling stations and other designated installations.
Peake Fuel Solutions, a Chesapeake affiliate, will provide assistance regarding natural gas vehicles, vehicle emission controls and gas market dynamics.
CNG has been used as a fuel in pickups, vans, sport-utility vehicles, taxicabs, transit buses, refuse and delivery trucks, and consumer vehicles. LNG is occasionally used for heavy-duty industrial purposes.
