  • Chesapeake CEO on CNG

    http://www.shreveporttimes.com/artic...909130315/1064

    The above is a Shreveport Times article about Chesapeake CNG promotion. It states that Aubrey drives a converted Chevy Tahoe. I wonder what range he has in his CNG SUV?

    Correct, that is a typical reaction people have when learning about CNG.

    But when they find out how much it *really* costs to convert to CNG, they are going to say "shove it, who has that kind of money laying around?" Instead of monkeying around with photo ops and self serving look-at-how-genius-we-are, they (pols and industry) need to be attacking the 500# gorilla that is the current regulatory environment which prevents a working family from realistically converting to CNG.

    Tax credits are a shell game in some states that, if you get a W2, very few can take advantage of.

      Mike Coppock for Tulsa World Nov 29 2017 -

      Michael Teague, Oklahoma s secretary of energy and environment, broke ground for a new CNG station this month. Oklahoma has the highest number of CNG stations per capita in the U.S. If the groundbreaking had taken place five years ago, it would have been a major media event. At that time, retailers such as Valero, OnCue, QuikTrip and Love s were getting on board to sell CNG to the public.

      Love s has 27 CNG stations primarily along Oklahoma s Interstate 40 corridor.

      OnCue has 18 CNG stations, all in Oklahoma. OnCue has no plans for any additional stations as we re-evaluate the market, said Scott Minton, the company s director of business management.

      A representative for Tulsa-based Quik-Trip says the convenience store chain no longer operates CNG stations.

      What happened?

      CEO Aubrey McClendon was forced out at Chesapeake Energy. In September 2013, Chesapeake s new management dismissed its seven-member CNG vehicle team while reorganizing.

      Sparq Natural Gas is focusing on vehicle fleet customers.

      Unlike EVs, automakers did not support the move to CNG:

        Largest public CNG station in the United States had its opening this week in Tulsa OK. It is said to have a dozen forty-foot storage tubes. No publicity could be found other than a story about groundbreaking from last year:
