Halliburton Deploys Pilot Fleet of Compressed Natural Gas Light-Duty Trucks

10:30 EDT Monday, May 20, 2013

HOUSTON (Business Wire) -- Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) announced today the deployment of nearly 100 light-duty Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) trucks across several field locations in the U.S. The Original Equipment Manufacturers bi-fuel trucks were recently purchased as part of a pilot program to be rolled out throughout the Company's U.S. operations.

“There is considerable focus across the industry to identify multiple ways to leverage this abundant, reliable and cleaner burning source of energy in day-to-day operations,” said Halliburton Western Hemisphere President Jim Brown. “The fleet of CNG vehicles is one more example where Halliburton is leading among oil and gas services companies regarding the use of American natural gas.”

The environmentally-friendly vehicles, when operating on CNG emit about 90 percent less emissions, and are estimated to save approximately $5,100 (USD) per truck in fuel cost annually.

“With this pilot program we expect to obtain a wealth of information on what it would take to bring about a successful, broader adoption of CNG light duty vehicles across the company,” added Brown.

The new CNG truck fleet will be assigned to 15 U.S. locations across seven states including; Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, California, Louisiana, Utah and Pennsylvania.
