  • Apache to build 2 more CNG stations

    Apache Corp. plans to build two more compressed natural gas stations to cash in on state-offered tax incentives.

    House Speaker Chris Benge, R-Tulsa, filled up his natural gas-powered Chevrolet Impala on Monday at Apache’s district office to spotlight incentive programs for using CNG.

    Apache CEO G. Steven Farris said the company built its first refueling station in Oklahoma because the state’s incentives improved the economic return for the project. It will be used for more than 40 company vehicles that will run on CNG.

    If it is not open to the public ... who cares what a private corp does ..



    This is non-news and the chance for a politician to get some press.

      At least the House Speaker is driving one of John's Impala conversions!

        Benge loves that car, and we love the publicity
        I wouldn't take him too much to task, OK has term limits and you gotta hand it to him for sincerely wanting to see CNG as a mainstream fuel

          What does he drive? Last time I spoke with him, he did not own a CNG vehicle. His term is up January 2011 and yes, he seemed very sincere about his desire for CNG to become a mainstream fuel.

            According to the news article, he was filling up "his" CNG-powered Impala.

              It's actually more about Apache perpetuating the problem instead of being part of the solution.

              So, on one hand, you have the CEO complaining about the lack of refueling infrastructure and then on the other hand, if your not a member of, quote, "state agencies, local governments and other CNG fleet operators" you get a decidedly unspoken "screw you".

              Unless, of course, your an elected official who happens to drive a CNG vehicle .. then it would seem your good to go.
