Two new compressed natural gas (CNG) stations have opened in Texas, according to amp Trillium, a joint venture between Trillium CNG and ampCNG.

The new stations are located off Interstate 20 in Brock, Texas, and I-10 in Kerrville, Texas. Open to the public, the stations will service all CNG vehicles. Three Class 8 trucks are able to fuel simultaneously at 10-12 diesel gallon equivalents per minute.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center, there are 832 public CNG stations and only 73 liquefied natural gas (LNG) stations in the U.S. at the present time. 

In a 2013 report, natural gas engine engineering company Westport projected that approximately 150 LNG stations would be needed to cover all of the major interstate trucking routes at 300-mile intervals. Back in March, Shell opened new LNG lanes at two TravelCenters of America locations.
