JANESVILLE, Wis. -- OnCue Express, Sunoco and Wawa are among the retail fuel providers within ANGI Energy Systems LLC’s commercial fuel customer base that are slated to open public fast-fill compressed natural gas (CNG) stations in fourth-quarter 2015.
“In the United States, direct CNG infrastructure development has remained active despite the current volatility in oil prices,” said Jared Hightower, vice president of sales for ANGI. “In addition to the environmental and energy security advantages, many fleets still recognize that the price stability of [CNG] offers dividends well beyond next quarter. Infrastructure providers see the benefit of CNG, too. We’re especially proud of our retail partners who are adding CNG to their fueling stations.”
In the Southern corridor, OnCue Express, a chain of more than 50 convenience stores and truckstops located throughout Oklahoma, has made a significant, long-term commitment to offer fast-fill CNG fueling at strategically located stations in this region.
The Stillwater, Okla.-based company has 18 CNG locations and will soon be adding two additional stations, the OnCue Express Truck Stop on I-35 at the Billings, Mont., exit and the new OnCue Express Convenience Store on I-240 in Oklahoma City.
On the Eastern seaboard, Sunoco Inc. commissioned ANGI equipment and successfully reopened its Sunoco APlus fueling station and convenience store at the Pittsburgh International Airport. In addition to this location, Sunoco integrated CNG into their New Stanton Travel Plaza on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
It is in the process of installing a third CNG station in Canonsburg, Pa., off of I-79, exit 43, on PA-519 South.
Philadelphia-based Sunoco markets motor fuels through retail outlets in 26 states mainly east of the Mississippi, from Maine to Florida and west to Wisconsin and Louisiana. Sunoco also has more than 650 APlus branded convenience stores that are company-operated or operated by third-party dealers.
Wawa Inc., one of the largest convenience store and retail fueling chains in the Mid-Atlantic region, has partnered with South Jersey Gas to introduce CNG to the Wawa network. Their first joint project fast-fill station will soon come online at Store #8305, S. Delaware St. & I-295 in Paulsboro, N.J.
The Wawa, Pa.-based company owns and operates more than 700 convenience stores (with approximately 450 offering gasoline) in five Mid-Atlantic states and Florida.
