TruStar Energy Celebrates Grand Opening of CNG Energy Fueling Station
TruStar Energy celebrated the grand opening of CNG Energy’s public natural gas fueling station in Liberal, Kansas. TruStar Energy was contracted to build the station earlier this year with the specific goal of supporting the growing need for CNG fuel for fleets operating out of Liberal and the surrounding Southwest Kansas area and Oklahoma Panhandle. TruStar Energy then worked with Black Hills Energy to make the station a reality.
The station features two covered and lighted fueling islands that can accommodate both large commercial vehicles, like the 12 tractors owned by CNG Energy, as well as smaller private vehicles. This was something that went into the planning of the station from the very beginning.
“Our first thought was to develop a private station to support our transport operation,” said CNG Energy’s Managing Member, Rocky Ormiston, “but we realized that other fleets would just go somewhere else when we had the capacity to provide fuel to them. We felt that it was important to provide the public with a place to fuel as well.”
Ormiston said the station will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and accepts most major credit cards as well as commercial fleet fueling cards.
