ANGI Energy Systems Reports Steady CNG Station Growth
ANGI Energy Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gilbarco Veeder-Root, says within the company’s commercial fuel customer base, multiple retail fuel providers are slated to open public fast-fill CNG stations in the fourth quarter of 2015.
“In the United States, direct CNG infrastructure development has remained active despite the current volatility in oil prices,” says Jared Hightower, Vice President of Sales for ANGI. “In addition to the environmental and energy security advantages, many fleets still recognize that the price stability of compressed natural gas offers dividends well beyond next quarter.”
In the Southern corridor, OnCue Express, a chain of more than 50 convenience stores and truck stops located throughout Oklahoma, has made a significant, long-term commitment to offer fast-fill CNG fueling at strategically located stations in this region. They currently have 18 CNG locations, and will soon be adding two additional stations, the OnCue Express Truck Stop on I-35 at the Billings exit and the new OnCue Express Convenience Store at I-240 and Sooner Rd. in Oklahoma City.
On the Eastern seaboard, Sunoco commissioned ANGI equipment and successfully reopened its Sunoco APlus fueling station and convenience store at the Pittsburgh International Airport. In addition to this location, Sunoco integrated CNG into their New Stanton Travel Plaza on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. They are currently in the process of installing a third CNG station in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania off I-79, exit 43 on PA-519 South.
Wawa, one of the largest convenience store and retail fueling chains in the Mid-Atlantic region, has partnered with South Jersey Gas to introduce CNG to the Wawa network. Their first joint project fast-fill station will soon come online at I-295 in Paulsboro, New Jersey.
