Just days after marking the grand opening of a compressed natural gas (CNG) station it built for a client in Kansas, TruStar Energy has announced the opening of a TruStar Energy-branded public CNG station in Tulsa, Okla.
The company says the 24/7 station, located in a heavy truck traffic corridor at 5011 S. Vandalia Ave., is capable of fueling several hundred vehicles a day. The new facility has two traffic lanes and two fast-fill fueling pumps, and it is supplied by natural gas from Apache Corp.
‘Tulsa has a high volume of CNG vehicles, and our new station is located close to several major fleets, making it a valuable, profitable and productive resource for businesses in the area,’ remarks Scott Edelbach, general manager of TruStar Energy.
In July, TruStar Energy announced a strategic initiative to build its own company-branded CNG stations and opened its first such station in Orlando, Fla.
‘Fueling infrastructure remains a challenge to wider adoption of CNG in the trucking industry – and we are in business to change that. An accessible network of CNG stations will incentivize more fleet owners to make the shift away from diesel and extend the range of CNG-powered fleets already on the road today,’ says Adam Comora, president of TruStar Energy.
‘We have embarked on a strategy to open dozens of company-branded public CNG stations along high-traffic U.S. corridors over the next several years – our Tulsa station is added to that growing list,” continues Comora.
