Second of Five CNG Stations Has Been Completed
U.S. Oil said Friday that it’s completed the second of five compressed natural gas fueling stations being built in partnership with Core-Mark, “one of the nation’s largest distributors and marketers of consumer goods in North America.”
The easy access, fast-fill Gain Clean Fuel station in Forrest City, Ark., will be open to all CNG fleets and the public.
Core-Mark operates more than 140 of CNG tractors with “another 60 are expected by the middle of next year,” U.S. Oil says. In addition to the Arkansas location, Gain Clean Fuel stations are expected to open near other Core-Mark locations in Sanford, N.C.; Smyrna, Georgia and Tampa by the second quarter of 2015.
Seeking More Fleet Partners
Further, according to the Forrest City announcement, “It’s projected that this newest Gain station will replace the equivalent of 400,000 gallons of diesel fuel in the next year and more than 1.5 million gallons in the next five years.”
U.S. Oil says it plans to have more than 100 Gain Clean Fuel stations operating within the next three years.
“Our goal is to have a Gain network in place that will provide easy access to CNG for local, regional and national carriers,” said business development manager Erick Johnson.
“To achieve this, we are actively seeking partnerships with carriers that are looking to benefit by converting their fleets to CNG.”
