Two Stripes Stores in Midland, Texas Area to Be the First
Apache Corp will offer compressed natural gas fueling in partnership with Stripes LLC, starting at two Stripes convenience store locations in Midland, Texas. Stripes is a subsidiary of Susser Holdings Corp. Apache uses ANGI Energy equipment for its newer CNG outlets.
“Adding natural gas to our conventional motor fuel products reinforces our mission to give Stripes customers what they want at a great price in our convenient store locations,”, Stripes retail president and CEO Steve DeSutter said in a release. “We certainly see the role of natural gas in our energy future, and we are looking forward to participating as it evolves as a viable alternative transportation fuel.
Stripes May Well Do More
“We plan to evaluate the results of our pilot project in West Texas, and if it is successful, we expect to gradually roll out CNG fueling capabilities in other Stripes markets,” DeSutter said.
“Partnering with Stripes provides our fleet and other CNG users with a more convenient fueling experience as well as access to their stores and other amenities,” said Apache chairman and CEO Steve Farris.
The first two Stripes facilities to offer CNG are located in Midland at:
- 3201 East Highway 158, which is expected to be operational by the end of November, and
- 4508 North Big Spring Street, expected to be operational by the end of December.
Apaches has 20 CNG stations. ANGI has done 12 packages and J-W Power has done eight. Of the last eight contracts awarded, seven were to ANGI, says Apache VP Frank Chapel.
Five ANGI stations are in progress now for Apache, including the two hosted by Stripes-Susser in Midland.
