TruStar Energy Opens Company Branded Station in Houston
TruStar Energy has opened a company-branded public CNG fueling station in Houston, Texas. The new Houston TruStar Energy CNG station has two traffic lanes and two fast-fill fueling pumps, providing access for commercial vehicles and private CNG-powered consumer vehicles. The station is supplied by natural gas from Apache Corporation and accepts commercial fuel cards such as Comdata or Fuelman as well as all major credit cards.
TruStar Energy currently is constructing dozens of CNG stations across the country, and the company has embarked on a strategy to open dozens of company-branded public CNG stations along high-traffic U.S. corridors over the next several years. TruStar Energy opened its first company-branded public fueling station in Orlando in July, a second station in Tulsa, Oklahoma, earlier this month and now adds Houston to that growing list.
“We have seen historical growth in Texas’ natural gas industry over the past decade, and natural gas engine fuel is increasingly growing as a domestic market for this abundant resource,” said David Porter, Chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission—the state’s chief energy agency. Recent data from the Texas Comptroller’s office shows that Texas fleet operators are purchasing natural gas in record numbers—sale of the fuel has increased 78 percent over FY 2014.
