Station in Liberal for First Public Access in Southwest Kansas
Sparq Natural Gas is spreading the word that the convenience store operator Hutch’s will open the first public access compressed natural gas fueling station in southwest Kansas, on July 1 in Liberal, near the Oklahoma line.
“At Hutch’s, we are seeing commercial and retail interest and questions on CNG continuing to rise and we want to meet the needs of our loyal customer base,” Hutch’s president David Hutchinson says in a Sparq announcement.
The firm is starting in Liberal, he says, and is looking “to expand across our station footprint.”

“We believe compressed natural gas has tremendous value as a transportation fuel and will play a significant role in the Kansas economy as the number of vehicles on the road grows,” said Black Hills Energy Kansas GM Todd Jacobs.
“That’s why we’re making the investment to integrate natural gas vehicles into our own fleet, and we’re committed to working with our communities and customers to bring natural gas fueling opportunities to fruition,” Jacobs said.
“Offering convenience, accessibility, and an attractive retail setting, the [Liberal] CNG station promises to be the first of many more CNG developments in the area,” Sparq says.
