Questar Fueling Company, a subsidiary of Questar Corporation, plans to build a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling facility in San Antonio, Texas.
The station will serve up to 60 class-8 natural gas powered trucks operated by Central Freight Lines and will also be open to other fleets and the general public.
The majority of trucks will use a private time fill facility in which 60 trucks can fill while parked. The remainder will use a 6-lane, high-speed-fueling station with public access for anyone driving an natural gas vehicle (NGV).
‘Our business is growing because the trucking industry is transitioning to CNG’, said Craig Wagstaff, executive vice president and COO of Questar Fueling. ‘Companies like Central Freight Lines are leading the way by demonstrating their commitment to a cleaner environment and using America’s abundant supply of natural gas’.
Central Freight Lines is projected to use more than 1 million diesel gallon equivalents of natural gas per year.
Don Orr, president and CEO of Cental Freight Lines commented that the new CNG fueling facility is the second of three that the company will have across Texas.
‘Questar fueling is helping to make our transition to natural gas much easier’, he said.
The station is expected to open this summer.
