CleanFUEL USA and ConocoPhillips [NYSE:COP] have signed a three-year agreement to advance propaneinfrastructure for the U.S.transportation fuel industry. Under the agreement, the two companies willprovide resources to install and supply propane fuel pumps for commercial fleetfuel users.  Propane fueling stations will be installed not only at fleetowner sites, but may also be made available nationwide at selectConocoPhillips’ branded stations, which include Conoco, Phillips 66 and 76stations.  ConocoPhillips will supply propane to the fueling stationsthrough regional propane marketers.
