California regulators recently gave the green light to two repowerings at coastal natural gas-fired generation plants that represent a combined 1,884 MW of mostly baseload generating capacity.

Amid corporate and governmental decisions and worried local citizen action groups, Long Beach, CA, is holding true to its long fossil fuel history and just keeps drilling.
Magellan Midstream Partners LP plans to construct a new pipeline origin point at Barnhart, TX, to accept crude oil shipments on the partnership’s Longhorn pipeline. The new point will be 75 miles east of the pipeline’s Crane, TX, origin and is expected to begin receiving crude oil in early 2015. The project is expected to cost…
Seal Beach, CA-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has announced a $20 million partnership with compressed natural gas (CNG) firm Mansfield Energy Corp. And the company reported 1Q2013 results that were still showing red ink, but much less of a loss than reported for the same period last year.
The nascent market for compressed natural gas vehicles (CNG) took another step forward as Seal Beach, CA-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp., a natural gas vehicle (NGV) fuel supplier, said that it will construct up to seven CNG fueling stations at waste management facilities across the country capable of fueling 30 refuse trucks a day.
The building of a natural gas transportation fueling network is becoming a reality, according to Seal Beach, CA-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp., which also said compressed natural gas (CNG) service was available for fleets and individuals in seven states ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.
A year-long study has concluded that hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in an urban oilfield in the Los Angeles area will not harm the environment.
After 15 years working to build a market for natural gas in transportation, Seal Beach, CA-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has released a public listing of major fleet operators using natural gas vehicles (NGV) in a resources document it is calling “The Road to Natural Gas.” It is a listing of trucking companies, refuse haulers, fleet operators, airports, municipalities and other organizations that have signed new or expanded agreements with Clean Energy to provide transportation fuel and other services for their vehicles and fleets. According to the NGV fuel and infrastructure provider the report contains “only information which has not been previously announced, including recently completed stations on Clean Energy’s designated America’s Natural Gas Highway with a partner, Pilot Flying J, and at other interstate locations. Clean Energy’s report includes new customers that it expects to ultimately use hundreds of thousands of gallons of natural gas fuel every month, according to CEO Andrew Littlefair who added that his company so far this year is exceeding its own internal plans for its core refuse, airport and transit markets. “There are natural gas engines now available for more vehicle classes; the U.S. has an abundant supply of cheap natural gas, and there is a greater understanding of the economic and environmental benefits of using natural gas as a transportation fuel,” Littlefair said.
The California Department of Conservation’s Oil/Gas Division goes to the heart of the state’s energy production region in Bakersfield Wednesday night to kick off a series of eight public workshops on hydraulic facturing (fracking) as a data-gathering phase prior to writing draft rules to more precisely regulate the oil/gas drilling process.
Another link in the national natural gas highway was established recently when Seal Beach, CA-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp. opened a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station in Seville, OH. The public station will support an expanding fleet of LNG trucks by Dillon Transport, a major contract freight carrier serving Owens Corning. The station is on property owned by Pilot Flying J Truck Travel Centers, a partner with Clean Energy in establishing the natural gas network for long-haul truck operators (see Daily GPI, Aug. 25, 2011). The Ohio LNG station received a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy as part of the federal stimulus program under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The station will support Dillon-operated trucks delivering raw materials to Owens Corning production plants that produce residential and commercial building materials.
