Distrigas of Massachusetts LLC, a subsidiary of GDF SUEZ Energy North America, says it is providing liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the first LNG refueling station east of the Mississippi River.
Enviro Express Natural Gas LLC owns and operates the combination LNG and compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in Bridgeport, Conn., adjacent to Interstate 95. This represents the first time LNG has been sold as a vehicle fuel from Distrigas's Everett Marine Terminal.
The public-access refueling station presently provides LNG to Enviro Express' new commercial fleet of 18 Kenworth T800 semi tractor-trailers and CNG to fleet customers.
Partially funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the $6.2 million project is part of the larger Connecticut Clean Cities Future Fuels project.
