Xpress Natural Gas CNG Facility Coming to Washington State
Xpress Natural Gas (XNG) has signed an agreement with the Port of Grays Harbor Commissioners to construct a $3 million CNG facility at the Satsop Business Park on the coast of Washington state. The ten-year lease is for 4.3 acres that XNG will use to construct a “virtual pipeline” CNG distribution terminal in the West Park area that will utilize the existing natural gas line to fill portable tubes for transport to industrial customers throughout the region.
An additional $2 million would be invested in the fleet of CNG trucks and trailers that will service XNG’s customers. The operation will be manned 24 hours per day and XNG expects to employ 20–25 employees at full build out, in addition to the construction and trucking service jobs that would be generated.
XNG also operates similar facilities in Maine and New York that provide trucked natural gas solutions to locations where a pipeline does not provide gas service. XNG operates the largest fleet of high-capacity, all-composite CNG trailers in North America and is the only provider of CNG services using CNG-powered tractor-trucks.
