GEORGETOWN, Texas -- CleanFUELUSA and ConocoPhillips signed a three-year agreement to advance the propane infrastructure for the U.S. transportation fuel industry, which calls for the two companies to provide resources to install and supply propane fuel pumps for commercial fleet fuel users.
Propane fueling stations will be installed at fleet owner sites and potentially nationwide at select ConocoPhillips’ branded stations, including Conoco, Phillips 66 and 76 stations, the companies stated. ConocoPhillips will supply propane to the fueling stations through regional propane marketers.
"CleanFUEL USA is a leader in propane engine technology and the installation of alternative fuel infrastructure," Chris Conway, president Americas supply and trading for ConocoPhillips, said in a statement. "The company’s expertise complements ConocoPhillips’ strengths in propane supply and relationships with branded fuel marketers to ensure that we meet the market’s growing need for propane. Through this collaboration our branded marketers can participate in expanding their fuel offering and providing a solution for this growing customer base."
Propane is an alternative fuel with lower greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline or diesel, according to the companies.
"This agreement with ConocoPhillips is a huge step forward for the U.S. propane engine fuel industry," Curtis Donaldson, CleanFUEl USA’s founder and CEO, said in a statement. "With support from an energy company, the industry can start to overcome the infrastructure challenge that has once been a sticking point for fleet managers and automotive OEMs considering propane for its inherent advantages. We look forward to working with ConocoPhillips to expand the distribution of propane, leveraging its established infrastructure footprint."
