Questar CNG in California and Colorado
Utah-based Questar Fueling has opened new public-access CNG fueling stations in Denver and in Buttonwillow, Calif., serving Frito-Lay and other fleet operators.
“Our transportation customers want clean fuels like reliable, low-cost natural gas for their fleets and they don’t have time for delays,” said GM Carl Galbraith. “Our high-speed, high-volume CNG-fueling stations have captured their attention.
“Some of the nation’s largest fleet operators, including Frito-Lay, are transitioning to clean-burning natural gas, and we’re committed to developing the CNG-fueling infrastructure that keeps them on the road,” he said.
Questar (Booth 463) says that over the past three years it has built ten CNG stations along transportation corridors in Texas, Kansas, Arizona, California, Colorado and Utah. Along with Utah’s Questar Gas, Questar Fueling currently owns and operates nearly 40 CNG outlets.
“Companies such as Frito-Lay, Anheuser-Busch, Swift Transportation, Central Freight Lines, Dart Transit and many others operating medium- and heavy-duty trucks are finding it easier and more cost effective to fill up with clean-burning natural gas. The price for CNG is currently about $2 per equivalent gallon.”
Questar Fueling provides consultation, design work, packaging and installation of CNG stations.
