Chevron U.S.A. Inc. announced today the opening of its second compressed natural gas (CNG) station in the state of California, increasing availability of lower carbon fuels to heavy duty vehicles. This newest station is a collaboration between Valley Pacific, one of California’s largest fuel marketers, and Chevron.
“Chevron has seen strong demand for our CNG fuel offering from new and existing customers,” said Nuray Elci, Chevron’s general manager for Renewables. “CNG is a lower-carbon fuel for fleets. Chevron is expanding our production of renewable natural gas (RNG) which will reduce carbon intensity even further. Chevron’s farm-to-fuel offerings will help our customers meet their lower-carbon goals.”
Chevron plans 30 CNG stations in California by 2025, helping us advance our goal of producing 40,000 million BTUs of RNG per day by 2030.
Chevron’s CNG efforts complement the strength of its traditional products business with new offerings that help customers support a lower carbon future. CNG and RNG are essential technologies in this portfolio of solutions.
“Valley Pacific is pleased to collaborate with Chevron to bring access to CNG at the Highway 99 and 198 interchange, their first marketer partnered CNG station. We’ve been working with Chevron and their quality fuels for years and we are proud to now extend that relationship to CNG,” said Nathan Crum, President, and CEO, of Valley Pacific. “We are planning a grand-opening celebration on March 1, and I hope the community turns out to show their support. Many thanks to the Valley Pacific team for making this happen.”
