In a story that sounds like it could have come from the county music press, Boone Pickens is getting some props. Pickens is not a famous banjo player but instead one of the founders of Clean Energy (the company calls itself North America's leader in clean transportation and refers to Pickens as "perhaps America's most outspoken advocate of natural gas as a transportation fuel"). Pickens is being honored for his role in promoting natural gas with a liquefied natural gas plant that was dedicated to him in Willis, Texas.

The "Pickens Plant" can produce about 100,000 gallons of LNG a day, according to Clean Energy. Clean Energy is the largest provider of vehicular natural gas (CNG and LNG) and related services in North America.
