A new fast-fill compressed natural gas station located at 2920 Silver Star Road in Orlando has recently opened its doors.

The station is located at Lewis Petroleum’s Silver Star Fuelman in the Princeton Industrial Park, just two blocks from Frito-Lay North America’s Orlando plant. Frito-Lay selected Trillium CNG to build natural gas infrastructure to fuel its fleet of CNG tractor-trailers.

The amp Trillium station will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will have two dual-hose dispensers, allowing two semitrailers to fuel at the same time. The station also features Trillium CNG’s 10 GGE per minute fast-fill hydraulic intensifier compressor.

    Whoop-T-dew! Has anyone taken notice of the fact that natural gas well head cost has increased from $2.00 to $2.50 Mcf since Thanksgiving? The Henry Hub price quote was $5.50 per mcf(per 1,000 cubic feet). Early this week, the price was over $6.00 per Mcf. This entire fascination with natural gas at so many different levels of the industry, by so many different players is truly the ultimate snake oil saga. One day, industry historians will review the efforts with respect to natural gas expansion and ask the simple question, "What were they thinking?" To waste so much time, effort and expenditures on an obviously useless project is a perfect example of the aged old saying, 'they could not see the forest because of the trees'. Good luck fellows with your pathetic natural gas pet projects.

    Within the next four to five years, we'll be reading about you and your companies in the bankruptcy section of the WSJ. Well at least you got your names in the paper.
