IGS Energy opens 3rd W.Va. natural gas fueling station

Jan. 29, 2014 @ 07:10 AM

CHARLESTON — IGS Energy has opened its third compressed natural gas fueling station for vehicles in West Virginia.

The Charleston station that opened Tuesday joins Ohio­based IGS Energy fueling sta­tions in Jane Lew and Bridge­port. IGS also has a station in Dublin, Ohio, and is opening another in May in Girard, Oh io.

Surging production has the gas industry seeking out new markets for its products, and companies are focusing more on the transportation sector. They tout natural gas as a cheaper, cleaner alternative to gasoline and diesel.

Maribeth Anderson with Chesapeake Energy says motor­ists can now drive natural gas­fueled vehicles from Charleston to Pittsburgh, at a cost of about $2 per gallon.
