New CNG Fueling Stations Coming Online in West Virginia
August 21, 2013
The compressed natural gas (CNG) services company IGS Energy recently announced that its CNG fueling station in Bridgeport should be open by September 1st, and that it began construction on another station in Charleston on August 6th, the State Journal reported. The company has committed to building a $10 million dollar CNG fueling corridor in West Virginia and Pennsylvania to provide the infrastructure for the use of the region’s abundant natural gas resources by companies and consumers interested in adopting CNG-powered vehicles. As reported by West Virginia Public Broadcasting, the adoption of CNG-powered vehicles is expected to increase in the region due to Ford Motor Company’s release of a CNG compatible version of its popular F-150 truck.
