This facility, the first and only compressed natural gas station between Corpus Christi and Houston open for use by the general public, is a partnership between Apache Corporation and United Agriculture Cooperative (United Ag) and will provide fuel not only to passenger vehicles, but also fleets offered by Apache, United Ag, Pioneer Well Services and Central Freight. Apache added two CNG fueling dispensers to a conventional station operated by United Ag.
“The CNG station in El Campo is now open to serve the public as well as our vehicles and other area fleets,” said Frank Chapel, Apache’s director of natural gas transportation fuels. “It is also quite strategic as it is currently the only public-access CNG station between Corpus Christi and Houston.”
United Ag, a cooperative serving the agricultural communities of the Texas Gulf Coast and that provides its members with services related to crop production, handling, processing and merchandising, also plans to add four new natural gas pickup trucks to its fleet.
