American Natural Gas (ANG), a distributor of alternative motor fuels held a ribbon cutting ceremony in collaboration with Tennessee Clean Fuels to unveil its new public compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Fayetteville, Tenn. The facility, located at 1560 Winchester Hwy., will be open to the public and PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division will be a major customer with its fleet of CNG tractor-trailers.

“At ANG, we’re committed to building better stations, serving our customers, and introducing the power of CNG to new communities across the country,” said Drew West, chief executive officer of ANG. “It’s an honor to be in Fayetteville today to celebrate our new station, highlight the achievements of the region’s energy pioneers, and honor Frito-Lay for its distinguished leadership and commitment to moving the alternative fuel industry forward.”

Open 24-hours, the fast-fill Fayetteville station has three consumer-friendly dispensers equipped with NGV2 nozzles to optimize the experience for heavy-duty, high-capacity users, as well as NGV1 nozzles for light and medium-duty use. The station accepts all major credit cards, including Voyager, Wright Express/Wex, and other leading fleet cards. ANG will oversee operations with state-of-the-art monitoring platforms and an expert on-call maintenance team.

“We are thrilled that Frito-Lay selected Fayetteville and Tennessee as a site to continue expanding their CNG fleet and are excited to get to know ANG as they help make it happen,” said Jonathan Overly, director of Tennessee Clean Fuels. “CNG has so many benefits: it reduces greenhouse gas and criteria pollutant emissions, supports growing more green American jobs, and reduces oil imports – don’t forget that we are still roughly 20% dependent on countries like OPEC member-states for overseas oil. Frito-Lay and ANG are helping us build a stronger and more independent and resilient USA.”

Cody Butterworth, LD&T associate from Frito-Lay’s Fayetteville traffic center, and Brent Tesla, vice president of operations at ANG, demonstrated how straightforward CNG fueling is with one of Frito-Lay’s tractor-trailers. The truck was connected to a 3600 PSI nozzle and fueling continued like it would at a typical gas station. A fast-fill operation, ANG’s station allows operators to fuel in minutes.

ANG currently owns and operates approximately 40 fueling stations in 13 states across the United States, inclusive of stations in process and under development. The company is expanding to meet fleets’ demands for CNG, a clean-burning alternative fuel with the power to run heavy-duty vehicles. Vehicles that run on natural gas generally emit 13% to 21% percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than vehicles that run on gasoline, according to ANG.
