As a producer of natural gas, Apache knows the resource's many benefits. Natural gas is clean, abundant and American. Apache began converting its U.S. field vehicles to compressed natural gas (CNG) and building stations at its operations in Stratton, Withers and Notrees, Texas; Hobbs, N.M.; and Chickasha, Elk City, and Woodward, Okla.
Apache also is exploring ways to coordinate its CNG refueling program with state agencies, local governments and other CNG fleet operators. Steve Farris, chairman and CEO, said, “The biggest obstacle to expanding the use of CNG right now is the lack of refueling infrastructure; that’s why we’ve built our own stations.”
According to the International Association for Natural Gas Vehicles, the number of natural gas vehicles (NGVs) and fueling stations grew an amazing 17.2 percent in the U.S. during 2009, with an annual average growth of 27.4 percent in the past nine years. Today there are over 110,000 NGVs and 1,300 CNG fueling stations in the U.S. While the number of NGVs and stations is growing, the United States still lags behind many other nations. All told, there are over 11 million CNG vehicles and 16,000 stations worldwide. With North America’s extensive natural gas resources and pipeline infrastructure, natural gas is readily available to supply future CNG stations and fleets.
In January, the United States paid approximately $28 billion to foreign nations for a one-month supply of crude oil. Imagine how that $28 billion could have been spent to help improve the U.S. economy.
