Freedom CNG to Break Ground on CNG Station in Texas
Freedom CNG plans to break ground on a fast-fill truck-friendly CNG fueling station in Midland, Texas, enabling local use of natural gas in vehicles in the Permian Basin. With plans to open to the public in the third quarter of this year, the station will be located southeast of Midland International Airport between I-20 Business and I-20, across from the Permian Basin headquarters of Schlumberger, a global E&P company. The new station and its proximity will provide easy access to CNG fuel for companies like Schlumberger with light duty pickup fleets and fleets with larger vehicles able to operate on natural gas. The station will provide CNG fuel to third-party users from passenger vehicles to tractor trailers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “Natural gas is a proven alternate fuel and the technology has progressed to a commercialization state which now makes CNG vehicles viable for regular use in our operations,” said Jeff Ostrander, Schlumberger North America Procurement & Sourcing Manager.
