Questar Fueling To Build CNG-Fueling Facilities For Swift Transportation And Central Freight Lines

Questar Fueling has signed an agreement to build, own and operate a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling facility in Houston, Texas, that will serve up to 200 natural gas-powered trucks operated by Swift Transportation and Central Freight Lines. These trucks are projected to use about 5 million gallons of natural gas per year. The majority of the trucks will use a private time-fill facility in which the trucks fill overnight. The remainder will use a five-lane, high-speed-fueling facility that will also be open to the public.

“Questar Corporation is excited to announce a partnership between these ‘best-in-class’ carriers and our fueling company – Questar Fueling,” said Ron Jibson, president, CEO and chairman of Questar Corporation. “Swift Transportation and Central Freight Lines are industry leaders in the adoption of CNG as a transportation fuel for the heavy-duty market. I commend them for their foresight in recognizing natural gas as a fuel that could transform the industry. With such abundant supplies of natural gas in America, it’s only a matter of time before we see more trucking companies switching fuels to cut costs, increase efficiencies and improve the air we breathe.”

“Our vendors expect us to consistently find ways to improve our transportation efficiencies,” said Jerry Moyes, chairman, founder and CEO of Swift Transportation. “CNG helps us meet that objective, and our partnership with Questar Fueling will help facilitate our transition to CNG.”
