Public Access Arkansas Station Supports Krug’s Oilfield Water Haulers

TruStar Energy disclosed this week that a compressed natural gas station it built for Krug Energy in Searcy, Ark. has been dispensing fuel since late December – supporting Krug’s fleet of 20 new Kenworth CNG-powered tractors, as well as trucks from several other local fleets.

The station features three dispensers that are suited to fuel both smaller consumer vehicles as well as larger commercial tractors.

“Krug Energy has aggressively migrated away from diesel because they see the opportunity presented by a stable, domestic fuel source,” TruStar president and CEO Adam Comora said in a release.

‘There’s No Way Diesel Fuel Isn’t Going Back Up”

“My trucks are burning 2,000 gallons of CNG daily – and even with lower diesel fuel prices at present, we’re saving money,” Krug Energy owner and president Rush Krug said in the TruStar announcement – adding that diesel fuel prices would not stay this low for long.

“We haul water for the oil fields, so we’re talking to producers all the time,” Krug said. “Everyone knows that there’s no way diesel fuel isn’t going back up. All you have to do is look at the prices of diesel over time.”

Engines Said to Be More Reliable

'Another satisfied customer,' says Krug: 'saving money and reducing emissions.'

“We’re running the 12-liter Cummins Westport CNG engine and we’ve had nothing but great success in comparison to our diesel engines,” Krug said. “They’re simple in comparison to similar diesel engines and we’ve had very little down time with the CNG engines.”

Krug has reduced downtime by 75% by converting to natural gas, TruStar says, as diesel emission sensors “were constantly downing his trucks,” costing money and reducing productivity.
