Utah's First LNG Station will Open March 22nd

CH4 Energy Corporation (CH4 Energy) will open Utah’s first Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) gas station on March 22 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., with a press conference featuring Governor Herbert at 11 a.m. An open house with vehicle demos, information, giveaways and more throughout the event.

The station, developed with funding support from a Utah Clean Cities Coalition administered, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant, is co-located on an existing travel plaza, 2025 S 900 W Salt Lake City. The station will dispense Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and LNG faster than any public Natural Gas fueling station in North America. Clean, domestic natural-gas vehicle fuels have the potential to have a significant positive impact on air quality in the state of Utah and the United States. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates that North America has well over a 100 year supply of clean natural gas.

The station will accept all major fleet fueling cards as well as consumer credit cards and the Utah state-fleet fueling card. The station will be open 365 days per year, 24 hours a day, with access to all the modern amenities of a state-of-the-art travel plaza. The station was designed from the ground up to provide ultra-fast freeway access to natural-gas vehicle fuels for every type of vehicle from the Honda Civic all the way up to the largest Class 8 tandem- and triple-trailer truck combinations. The station has separate ingress and egress lanes for light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles.
