The Tulsa Area Clean Cities Coalition and the Indian Nations Council of Governments (INCOG) are presenting the inaugural CNG Summit event in Tulsa, Okla., on Sept. 19. The summit, which is convening at the OU Schusterman Center, is focused on examining all the issues related to fleet conversions to compressed natural gas (CNG).
The organizations say the objective of CNG Summit is to educate fleet managers and small- to mid-sized business owners about the benefits of using CNG in fleet operations. In Oklahoma, CNG currently retails for $1.60/gal. or less.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is scheduled to discuss the state's commitment to using CNG, and Stephe Yborra from the Clean Vehicle Education Foundation will examine the economic case for natural gas vehicles. Fleet managers will be on hand to talk about their own experiences with CNG, and NGVs will be on display.
Tulsa Gas Technologies is the presenting sponsor of the event. Additional sponsors include Apache Corp., Don Carlton Honda, ClearSkyCNG, Crane Carrier Co., the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, Pipeliners Local 798, Chrysler, the Tulsa Technology Center, the Clean Vehicle Education Foundation, Small Arrow Engineering, Spectrum LNG, Westport LD, Verdek, Arrow Engine Co., Bob Hurley Ford, and ONEOK.
