Autogas Technology to be the Choice to Replace More Than 300 Oil and Gas Field Vehicles with Propane Over Five Years
ROUSH CleanTech propane vehicles have been tested by U.S.-based energy company ConocoPhillips in the field since 2011, logging thousands of miles in sometimes challenging conditions in northwest New Mexico and southwest Colorado.
As a result of the tests, ConocoPhillips recently announced it will convert 30 trucks to propane autogas this year and replace more than 300 more trucks over the next five years with vehicles powered by propane fuel technology.
“The addition of propane autogas trucks will greatly reduce ConocoPhillips’ carbon footprint while using a fuel they produce here in the U.S.,” said Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing for ROUSH CleanTech. “And with autogas’ low-priced fuel and infrastructure costs, this investment will pay off for their bottom line.”
