big things going to happen here in next 18 months.
NG Advantage operates 52 rigs before this announcement.
That is a lot of daily fuel being delivered.
pcstel....it looks like irdm is on their knees begging for the G* spectrum with their filing today. RM-11697
Does the delay in knowing what spectrum to program in the satellites affect launch?
Looks like Iridium blinked and is asking for all to play "fair" ball.
Does delays is this proceeding affect the launch schedules for their NEXT as they might need appropriate technology on board to handle this spectrum??
Looks like ex- founder and CEO of Public Knowledge is Counselor to the Chairman.

Number of Planned CNG and LNG Stations
Posted on April 16, 2015 by Admin in By the Numbers
Despite the uncertainty that declining oil prices have inserted into the market for NGVs, the number of planned CNG stations continues to rise. Looking ahead, as the chart illustrates, AFDC shows 185 CNG stations in the planning stage. AFDC data shows there being 69 LNG stations in the planning stage. Planned stations are stations that have been either announced, are in permitting, or are under construction. The list of planned stations also includes stations where installation of fueling infrastructure has been completed but the stations have yet to begin dispensing fuel. In the case of LNG stations, installation of fueling infrastructure has been completed at many of the LNG stations reported as planned in the AFDC database, but these stations have not yet begun dispensing LNG pending sufficient demand from customers to warrant the opening of these stations.
Bodes well for the industry and clne.
Somebody is building for the future needs.
Clean Energy Fuels Corp upgrades two Alabama facilities to offer LNG for trucks
A California company recently opened two stations that offer liquified natural gas to trucks in Theodore and Birmingham.
Clean Energy Fuels Corp. said that the two sites -- Birmingham Flying J and Theodore Pilot -- were among four new stations opened in the Southeast United States. Clean Energy officials said the facilities would help support the operations of a Jacksonville, Fla.-based trucking company, Raven Transport, which recently added 115 trucks to its natural gas fleet.
Clean Energy already had stations in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas, the company said. In addition to the new sites opened in Alabama, Atlanta, Ga. and Pearl River, Miss., Clean Energy also plans to deploy more mobile LNG stations to help provide refueling services in the Southeast.
"The natural gas fueling ecology continues to strengthen as America's largest shippers and their logistics companies transition to natural gas," Chad Lindholm, vice president of Clean Energy, said in a statement.
"As these four stations open and join our existing infrastructure, it becomes increasingly feasible for fleets hauling in the Southeast and beyond to make the switch to natural gas."
Headquartered in Newport Beach, Calif., Clean Energy builds and operates fueling stations, manufactures technology and develops facilities to support the use of natural gas.
"These projects will provide the kind of infrastructure Alabama needs to support businesses, governments and individuals that want to reap the advantages of alternative fuels," Mark Bentley, executive director of the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition, said in a prepared statement. "Fuels like LNG are an easy sell when there are convenient places to purchase them."
