AECOM to Build Shell’s First U.S. LNG Fueling Lanes

AECOM Technology Corporation is opening Shell’s first LNG fueling lanes for heavy-duty commercial trucks, the first in the United States.

AECOM Technology Corporation, a provider of professional, technical and management support services for public and private clients joins Shell in announcing the opening of Shell’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling lanes for heavy-duty commercial trucks in the United States. AECOM provided centralized project management services including programming, design, comprehensive environmental permitting and construction management. 

The LNG fueling lanes, located at a truck stop in Ontario, Calif., represent the first of 20 locations AECOM will build for Shell throughout the country. Each location will include LNG storage tanks, pumps and cryogenic piping systems, automation and control systems, dispensers, as well as civil and electrical infrastructure related to site safety and operations.

“AECOM is proud to partner with Shell to create new markets for its natural gas products and advance alternative energy solutions,” said Bob Weber, AECOM’s chief executive, resources & industry. “By making LNG more readily available, heavy-duty commercial trucks will be able to access a long-term, cost-competitive fuel option that can help lower its users’ greenhouse gas emissions and operational budgets.”

“Our integrated team of permitting, design and construction specialists is working in close collaboration with Shell,” added Thomas Rathburn, first vice president of AECOM’s Tishman Construction operation. “We’re focused on delivering safety, security, performance and value to Shell for the nationwide program.”

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
