American Natural Gas to Open City’s First CNG Station in Kentucky
American Natural Gas (ANG) is building a new CNG station in Georgetown, Kentucky, where Bestway Express, a truckload carrier, will be the anchor tenant. The station will be available for use by other carriers and the public and is expected to open in November of this year.
This will be the first public CNG station in Georgetown, which is a regional hub for the automotive, agriculture, and transportation industries. Once completed, ANG will make alternative fuel readily available for carriers and shippers along the I-75/I-64 corridor. ANG is responsible for building, owning, and operating the Georgetown CNG station.
“I’m proud to welcome ANG to the Commonwealth,” said Governor Steve Beshear. “This CNG station is a win-win-win for Kentucky – it helps strengthen our economy, improves our environment and supports our energy strategy.”
ANG is working closely with Columbia Gas, a utility company and natural gas supplier, to secure high pressure and adequate capacity at the location. The site will feature generous ingress and egress, large capacity buffer storage and consumer-friendly CNG fuel dispensers.
