U.S. Oil will be building a new GAIN Clean Fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in Sunnyvale, Texas, for anchor fleet J Rayl Transport Inc., a transportation company that is rolling out an increasing number of heavy-duty natural gas vehicles (NGVs).
J Rayl broke ground on its first CNG station last spring at 1201 S. Arlington St. in Akron, Ohio. That public-access facility is currently operational, and U.S. Oil is acquiring that station as a part of its partnership with J Rayl.
‘By partnering with U.S. Oil and taking advantage of its GAIN network, our goal is to be among the most fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly fleets in the country,’ says J Rayl CEO Jeremy Rayl.
J Rayl has firm plans to deploy 76 CNG-powered tractors in the near future. Long-terms plans call for the company to convert half of its 200+ trucks to run on natural gas.
The new facility in Sunnyville, which is outside of Dallas, is scheduled to be online in September.
