TruStar Energy, a developer of compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling infrastructure throughout the United States, celebrated the grand opening of High Plains Bioenergy’s fast-fill CNG station, which is across the road from its Guymon OK processing facility.
“High Plains Bioenergy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Seaboard Foods—a division of Seaboard Corporation, is a renewable energy company focused on producing, as well as using high-quality, alternative fuels for the Seaboard Foods integrated food system,” said Terry Holton, Seaboard Foods president and chief executive officer.
This station is HPB’s first public station and offers 24/7 access. The addition of the CNG fueling station ensures the availability of CNG to Seaboard Foods’ fleet and also provides a fuel source for the growing number of CNG vehicles in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
Seaboard Foods and its integrated food system produce pork products by controlling every step from before the farm to beyond the fork. Expansion of its CNG fleet and launch of the public CNG filling station aligns closely with its commitment to be environmentally responsible in the communities in which it works.
Since the start of its transition, Seaboard Foods has logged more than 7 million miles with CNG fuel and is on track to displace more than 1 million gallons of diesel fuel in 2014 alone. Its fleet includes more than 160 CNG-fueled vehicles, which includes light-duty pickups, semitrailers hauling feed and livestock, and over-the-road trucks hauling pork products from coast to coast.
The HPB station represents the first TruStar station to be built in Oklahoma.
