Construction of the Corridor along I-79 is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2013 and, depending on the station, will support light, medium, and heavy-duty vehicles. Several companies have already committed to fuel their natural gas vehicles on the corridor, including Antero Resources, Chesapeake Energy Corporation and EQT Corporation. In addition to private fleets, the West Virginia Department of Highways has committed to fuel state CNG-powered vehicles at Corridor stations.
“This is a great day for West Virginia –it’s one my Natural Gas Vehicle Task Force has been looking forward to since their very first meeting back in July 2011. Today, West Virginia is one step closer to lessening our reliance on foreign fuel sources,” said Gov. Tomblin. “These soon-to-be new filling stations are the beginning of the infrastructure necessary to support our state’s conversion to natural gas fueled vehicles.”
