Circle K Stores Inc. (Circle K) and VNG.co, LLC have entered into an agreement to implement VNG’s retail compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling at Circle K’s latest facility in Houston, Texas. The new-to-industry Circle K site will include a VNG fast-fill CNG dispenser that will be open to the public 24/7. VNG is building a network of retail CNG fueling points in the Houston metropolitan area.
“We are excited to partner with Circle K, a premier retail fuel marketer in the US, to bring a true retail CNG fueling experience to the Houston market,” said Robert Friedman, COO of VNG. “By offering drivers of light duty CNG vehicles a familiar, convenient and reliable retail location to fuel, they can drive with the confidence that CNG will be readily available. As an added bonus, they can take care of their retail needs in a new, contemporary Circle K facility.”
VNG offers retail CNG fueling to support and accelerate the widespread use of light-duty CNG capable vehicles by national and regional fleets, and eventually the mass-market consumer segment. The company provides fleets with cost-effective, turnkey CNG fueling services within existing retail gasoline stations.
