Eleven C-store Chains Expected to Soon Offer CNG Fueling Stations


OKLAHOMA CITY -- When it comes to convenience store chains ready to offer compressed natural gas (CNG) at the pump, Chesapeake Energy Corp. has named names for the first time.

In an exclusive interview with CSNews Online in January, the natural gas manufacturer cited Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores and OnCue Express as the only two convenience store chains currently offering CNG. However, during an investor presentation this week, Chesapeake revealed that CNG fueling stations will soon be available at many more c-store/gas station chains.

According to Chesapeake, 7-Eleven, Murphy USA, Gulf, Valero, Stripes, QuikTrip, Kum & Go, Wawa, Giant Eagle, Sheetz and Dandy Mini Mart will all soon offer CNG.

In the supermarket space, Chesapeake stated Kroger and Meijer will also soon offer CNG fueling stations.

Chesapeake added that c-store and supermarket chains are interested in offering CNG because it can save consumers 50 percent on their transportation fuel bills.

On a related note, the natural gas provider stated during the investor presentation that "America's Natural Gas Highway," expected to provide liquefied natural gas (LNG) truck fueling locations from coast to coast, will be completed in 2013.
