Alpine Group is representing Shell Oil in its effort to work the regulatory issues surrounding liquid natural gas fueling stations for trucks.

The energy giant envisions a future where LNG terminals line the interstate highway network to fill the power needs of heavy-duty vehicles.

It participates in a pilot program with TravelCenters of America and Petro Stopping Centers to develop prototypes of LNG facilities.

Shell believes America's abundant supply of LNG will ultimately cut energy cost for the nation's commercial truck fleet, lower emissions and reduce engine noise levels.

Alpine's Jason Schendle and Mike Henry work the Shell business.

Schendle is former staffer for Louisiana Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu, who chairs the Energy and Natural Resources Committee and serves on the powerful Appropriations panel.

Henry was a staffer at the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, where he worked on surface transportation and pipeline safety matters.
