Seal Beach-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has inked a deal to develop natural-gas-fueling stations at Pilot Travel Centers' truck stops nationwide.

Under the deal, Clean Energy will build, own and operate public-access, compressed- and liquefied-natural-gas facilities at some Pilot Flying J truck travel centers.

Pilot operates more than 550 stations in more than 40 states and six Canadian provinces, and is touted as the largest truck-fueling operator in the U.S.

“Pilot Flying J is the clear leader in the truck-stop and travel-center industry," said Andrew Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy. "This is the critical link for Clean Energy to be able to roll out natural-gas-truck fueling services across the nation."

Clean Energy fuels more than 18,300 vehicles daily at 200 locations across the U.S.

“Major regional and national trucking operators are considering the move to natural gas for their fleets to add fuel diversity, lower emissions and reduce dependence on imported oil," finished Littlefair. "Partnering with Pilot Flying J will not only allow us to help meet the demand from these fleets, but will also enable us to begin creating a nationwide goods movement corridor for natural-gas trucks.”
