Natural Gas Fuel Structure Proposed for Development


Fears, Ronda, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Journal Record Staff Reporter Talks are ongoing between Oklahoma and Colorado officials to develop a public compressed natural gas fueling infrastructure in the Sooner State, it was learned Wednesday.

Paul A. Nelson, vice president of Natural Fuels Corp. in Denver, said the Colorado company is discussing plans with Oklahoma government officials and an Oklahoma company or utility whose identity he declined to reveal.

Oklahoma Natural Gas Co., which has worked with the state of Oklahoma in a conversion program for school buses, said it has not been involved in talks with Natural Fuels. ONG is the state's largest gas utility.

Plans are to expand into the California, Illinois, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, New Mexico and Minnesota markets as well, Nelson said. Long term, plans are to expand nationwide and internationally.

Oklahoma officials joined Texas, Colorado and Louisiana officials in a news conference in Dallas last week, using the Middle East crisis to propel natural gas into the forefront of the energy security issue. …
