MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — IGS Energy says it will build and operate a $10 million network of compressed natural gas fueling stations for vehicles along Interstate 79 from Charleston to Mount Morris, Pa.
The plan the Ohio-based company announced Thursday calls for stations in Bridgeport, Charleston and Jane Lew, along with the one in southwest Pennsylvania.
President Scott White says it will serve the growing number of businesses and residents converting to natural gas vehicles.
The company says the so-called CNG Fueling Corridor is the first of its kind since Marcellus shell drilling began to take off.
Surging production has the gas industry seeking out new markets for its products. Companies are starting to focus more on the transportation sector.
They tout natural gas as a cheaper, cleaner alternative to gasoline and diesel.
