Questar Fueling Plans Second Texas CNG Fueling Station For Central Freight Lines And The Public

Questar Fueling Company, subsidiary of Questar Corporation (NYSE:STR), plans to build a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling facility in San Antonio, Texas. The station will serve up to 60 class-8 natural gas-powered trucks operated by Central Freight Lines and is expected to open this summer. The station will also be open to other fleets and the general public who drive natural gas vehicles (NGVs).

Central Freight Lines is projected to use more than 1 million diesel-gallon equivalents of natural gas per year. The majority of the trucks will use a private time-fill facility in which 60 trucks can fill while parked. The remainder will use a 6-lane, high-speed-fueling station with public access for anyone driving an NGV.

“Our business is growing because the trucking industry is transitioning to CNG,” said Craig Wagstaff, executive vice president and COO of Questar Fueling. “Companies like Central Freight Lines are leading the way by demonstrating their commitment to a cleaner environment and using America’s abundant supply of natural gas. In addition, other motorists in the San Antonio area will have public access to the new CNG station’s clean, low-cost fuel.”

“This is the second of three CNG-fueling facilities we will have across Texas,” said Don Orr, president and CEO of Central Freight Lines. “Questar Fueling is helping to make our transition to natural gas much easier. Our commercial-private partnership with the company has resulted in convenient and reliable CNG fueling for our trucks. Fueling with natural gas is also helping us operate more efficiently, reduce pollution and become less dependent on foreign-oil imports as we support our home-state economy.”

The new CNG-fueling facility is owned and operated by Salt Lake City-based Questar Fueling, which designs, builds and operates CNG-stations for fleets.
