Local CNG Stations Could Double Over the Next Two Years
October 31, 2013
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the number of compressed natural gas stations could double over the next two years. The increase is a result of a number of companies converting their vehicle fleets to run on CNG. Recently, Shale Hotels Inc. and “O” Ring CNG Fuel Systems LP entered into a joint venture to build an undisclosed amount of CNG stations. There are currently five CNG stations in Southwestern Pennsylvania that are open to the public: EQT’s Strip District facility, Giant Eagle’s stations in Crafton and Cranberry, American Natural’s Station Square station and Waste Management’s Clean-n-Green station in Washington County.
