New CNG Fueling Station Open in Bridgeport, WV

IGS Energy CNG Services (IGS) has opened its first compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in West Virginia, reports the State Journal.  IGS president Scott White stated that the Bridgeport, WV station is the first of three that are planned to serve the I-79 corridor between Pittsburgh and Charleston, and is the first publically accessible station to open in West Virginia in the past twenty years.  West Virginia has taken aggressive steps to promote the use of CNG as an alternative fuel for public and commercial fleet vehicles.  At the grand opening of the Bridgeport CNG station, Governor Earl Ray Tomblin made the following statement: “With the opening of this station, West Virginia once again is taking a bold step and leading the way toward national energy independence. Not only are we utilizing a cleaner burning fuel, but we are putting to use one that is produced right in our own state by hard-working West Virginians.”
