Houston Firm Offering CNG Fuel Stations
Nat G CNG Solutions, based in Houston, Texas, has introduced its Nat G 500 Series compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle fueling station for mid-sized fleets.
The company said the skid-mounted fueling station is priced at US$60,000, after a federal tax credit, making it the first to break the US$100,000 price barrier. It delivers up to 23 gasoline gallon equivalents (gge) of CNG per hour when configured as a time fill unit and also can fast fill at 80 gge per hour.
The fueling system uses Sauer Compressors equipment. Don Eaton, Sauer president and CEO, said the Nat G system will make “CNG refueling truly affordable for mid-sized fleet customers.”
Nat G said its station will produce CNG for US$1/gal., but fuel costs will depend on the customer’s natural gas and electrical expenses. The company also makes larger units for full-sized commercial stations.
