Sparq Natural Gas, Timmons Oil, Dericks Leasing and Financial, and J-W Power broke ground today on Oklahoma’s largest capacity Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) filling station, also the State’s 121st. The station is to be constructed at Timmons Oil Company, 3003 E Admiral Place in Tulsa.
The location of this high-flow, heavy-duty accessible CNG station represents a crucial gateway to fleets traveling along the I-44 “CNG Corridor” and provides yet another link in Oklahoma’s CNG fueling network, delivering more options for operators of heavy trucks traveling between St. Louis and Dallas, as well as CNG trucks operating in the Tulsa region.
Texas-based J-W Power will install two 150 hp PowerFill CNG compressors. The company recently announced the obtaining of a patent for its CNG fueling system.
Sparq plans to acquire or build additional CNG fueling locations with a particular focus on regions that currently have no CNG infrastructure. According to the company website, new stations are planned for Wagoner, OK and Houston in Texas.
CNG currently sells in Tulsa for between $1.55 and $1.65 per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE). Gasoline ranges from $2.29 to $2.59 per gallon while diesel costs $2.76.
