Utah's Second LNG Station Completes 700-Mile Corridor
September 06, 2012
Utah's second liquefied natural gas fueling station celebrated its grand opening in Beaver, Utah, Aug. 30, after opening Aug. 3.
The station is a project of BLU (Transfuels LLC) in partnership with the Utah Clean Cities Coalition, which say it represents the last critical link in the longest LNG transportation corridor in the United States.
Class 7 and Class 8 heavy-duty trucks can now operate on this 700-mile corridor between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles with public freeway access to LNG every 200 to 250 miles.
The new station is located immediately off Interstate 15 freeway exit 109. The station will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and will accept all major fleet fueling cards as well as consumer credit cards.
LNG is natural gas that has been cooled to about 260 degrees below zero and can be stored at high densities as a vehicle fuel for heavy-duty trucks.
In addition to its flagship station in Salt Lake City and the newly opened Beaver station, BLU currently has two additional sites under construction in Utah that will be operational within the next 60 days. The first is located off I-215 and California Ave in Salt Lake City, and the second is located in the Uintah Basin at Myton, Utah.
