Latest Station Is One of About 20 for Apache, Most of Them by ANGI
Apache Corp has opened a new CNG station in Houston’s Galleria shopping district, at 2109 McCue Road, adjacent to the company’s corporate headquarters.
Steve Farris, Apache chairman and CEO, addressed about 150 attendees at a grand opening ceremony on March 22. The event included Houston-based compressed natural gas system dealers and installers and a selection of CNG-powered vehicles.
Apache says that since 2009, it has converted some 42% of its U.S. fleet vehicles to CNG power – representing more than 450 cars and trucks – with a long-term goal of converting 80% of its fleet.
Including the new Galleria facility, Apache has built 20 CNG fueling stations in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana. Six are public access facilities and the private CNG stations are available to other area fleets by agreement.
Most, including Houston, were done by ANGI Energy Systems.
Apache is using natural gas for hydraulic fracturing too, working with the global E&P services providers Halliburton and Schlumberger in Oklahoma – and with Caterpillar, which stepped up its commercialization schedule to provide its new Dynamic Gas Blending dual fuel upfits for 3512C engines.
