TruStar to Build Station for CNG Energy in Kansas
On Tuesday, TruStar Energy has been awarded the contract to design and build a large public-access fueling station for CNG Energy to support Liberal, Kansas, and the surrounding Southwest Kansas area and Oklahoma Panhandle.
CNG Energy Vice President Rocky Ormiston has looked into CNG to power their 12 Kenworth tractors, which are scheduled to haul ethanol co-products from the local ethanol plant as well as corn and sorghum into the plant. “Two things that we immediately appreciated with natural gas were the cost per MCF and its price stability over time,” said Ormiston. “You can do a lot of projections as far as budgeting is concerned without the threat of price spikes. We’re also using a domestic fuel source instead of something coming in on a tanker from overseas.”
The CNG Energy station will feature two public fast-fill dispensers with volume that will support not only their own 12 tractors, but other commercial fleets and private vehicles as well.
