– Oklahoma fuel marketing and convenience store retailer OnCue Express announced plans to open three new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations in Oklahoma by the end of 2011. The new CNG fueling stations will be located at existing OnCue Express locations in the cities of Del City, Enid and Stillwater. Once completed, the three additional CNG fueling stations will bring OnCue Express’ total number of CNG fueling stations to 13, making the company the largest operator of CNG fueling stations in Oklahoma.
OnCue Express currently owns and operates fueling stations in Del City, Enid and Stillwater, but plans to add CNG access for bi-fuel or CNG dedicated fleet and passenger vehicles at each location. These new CNG fueling locations further increase accessibility to CNG in Oklahoma. In 2011, more than 15 new CNG fueling stations were announced to be opened across Oklahoma, many located near major state and interstate highways. By the end of 2012, Oklahoma is expected to have more than 70 publically accessible CNG stations, one of the largest market saturations in the country.
“As a local company, we are proud to support Oklahoma’s natural gas industry by opening new CNG fueling stations in the state,” said Jim Griffith, OnCue Express chief executive officer. “The economic and environmental benefits of natural gas as a transportation fuel are well documented and our company believes that increasing CNG accessibility is the right thing to do for our customers and our country. We hope the addition of more CNG stations will continue to increase demand for this domestic fuel.”
