Go Natural Gas Inc., in partnership with a large international compressed natural gas equipment manufacturer, plans to open a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station to serve the growing natural gas vehicle market in the LAX area. GNG’s new station will be located at the corner of Airport Boulevard and W. Manchester Avenue and will be available 24/7 for public access.
The 40,000-square-foot lot – accessible for fueling buses, trucks and light-duty vehicles – eventually will have the capacity to fuel 20 vehicles simultaneously and provide a convenience store to service the commercial fleet drivers and the general population.
“Go Natural Gas is blessed with the opportunity to open another public access station at the Los Angeles International Airport,” says Timothy Nelligan, Go Natural Gas president. “With Ford, General Motors and Honda offering more OEM natural gas vehicles, our company can help provide alternative fueling options for the general public and the commercial fleet owners that serve the airport and surrounding areas.”
Go Natural Gas opened its first public access CNG station in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., in October 2009 and says it has consulted on the design of more than 20 CNG fueling stations across the United States. GNG plans to build an additional four stations in the Southern California region in 2011 in conjunction with grant funding from the South Coast Air Quality Management District and Mobile Source Reduction Committee.
