Shell to Bring LNG to Great Lakes and Gulf Coast
North America’s abundant natural gas reserves are being put to good use by Shell, which just announced plans to make liquefied natural gas (LNG) available to heavy-duty trucks and marine users in Ontario and in Louisiana. These two units will form the basis of LNG transport corridors in the Great Lakes and Gulf Coast regions.
“Natural gas is an abundant and cleaner-burning energy source in North America, and Shell is leveraging its LNG expertise and integrated strength to make LNG a viable fuel option for the commercial market,” said Marvin Odum, President, Shell Oil Company. “We are investing now in the infrastructure that will allow us to bring this innovative and cost-competitive fuel to our customers.”
This week’s announcement follows a similar decision that was made in the Alberta market in 2011.
Pending final regulatory permitting, these two new liquefaction units are expected to begin operations and production in about three years.
