Sparq Natural Gas and EZ Go Stores Celebrate Groundbreaking of New CNG Station
Sparq Natural Gas and EZ GO Stores held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the opening of a new CNG fueling station at the City of Lawton Public Works Yard in Lawton, Oklahoma. The new station features a private time-fill option for CNG-powered municipal sanitation trucks and a public fast-fill option, built on city-owned property. The companies say that this model enables private companies to work with government stakeholders to bring the cost savings and environmental benefits of CNG to both public and private stakeholders.
The station features two 175 horsepower Bauer compressors, two high-flow heavy-duty nozzles, two light-duty nozzles, and 26 time-fill fueling stalls.
The project represents Sparq’s second ground breaking in the last two months as part of Sparq’s effort to create a statewide network of CNG fueling availability in Oklahoma, and Sparq’s eighth separate strategic investment partnership across the region. EZ GO Stores has successfully developed two CNG locations.
The station is expected to begin operations by the end of the year, and a ceremonial grand opening will be held in the spring of 2017.
