FINDLAY, Ohio – Speedway LLC is teaming up with IGS CNG Services to bring a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station here near the convenience store operator’s headquarters. The site will be located at the Ohio State Route 99 exit off of Interstate 75, with construction set to begin early this summer.
According to the companies, the creation of a CNG fueling station serves a growing number of businesses looking for easy access to the alternative fuel while traveling through the region after converting their fleets to natural gas.
“We are pleased to offer our Speedway site as a convenient fueling location for customers with natural gas vehicles,” said Tony Kenney, president of Speedway.
The Findlay, Ohio, station will be the sixth offering CNG in IGS’ network.
“In partnership with Speedway, our plans for a regional CNG fueling corridor respond to the emerging market demand for fast, convenient refueling locations,” said Scott White, President of IGS Energy. “We’ll have two lanes at the Findlay Speedway location that will allow customers to fuel their natural gas vehicles in approximately the same amount of time it would take to refuel a traditional gasoline or diesel vehicle.”
CNG has been touted as a cheaper and more environmentally friendly fuel compared to traditional gasoline. In addition, the alternative fuel is locally produced, with a supply that could perhaps last as long as 100 years, according to some experts.
Dublin, Ohio-based IGS CNG Services is focused on building fast-fill CNG stations throughout the Midwest.
Speedway LLC operates approximately 1,480 convenience stores in nine states. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Marathon Petroleum Corp.
