First Liquefied Natural Gas Station Opens In Salt Lake City

Utah’s first liquefied natural gas station opened today, adjacent to the junction of I-80 I-15, in Salt Lake City. It is expected to become an important hub for drivers using the clean-burning fuel.

Forbes.com has this article about the new station. Below are excerpts.

Along with five hoses for LNG service, the station will offer 12 hoses for compressed natural gas that is more commonly used by passenger cars and light-duty trucks, said Merritt Norton, chief executive officer for CH4 Energy, the company that will operate the station.

Utah already has good infrastructure for CNG vehicles, with more than two dozen stations open, Norton said. Many of those are along I-15.

Because it is domestic, natural gas provides energy independence and boosts the economy, said Utah Gov. Gary Herbert. But he cautioned that natural gas supplies depend on access to gas wells.
