EFUS Grand Opening—CNG Comes To Bentleyville

By: Kristie Kubovic, Director of Communications, Shale Media Group Edited By: Mindy Gattner, Editor, Shale Media Group Photos By: Shale Media Group On Thursday, May 28th, around 140 people celebrated the grand opening of Energy From US (EFUS), a compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in Bentleyville, PA. This is only the second CNG refueling station in Washington County, PA and eighth across southwestern Pennsylvania. The station has a prime location off of I-70 halfway between Washington, PA and New Stanton, PA and along Route 917 in Bentleyville, near Big Jim’s Plaza and the Holiday Inn Express and Best Western hotels.  The concept for the station’s name, Energy From US, is a two-fold play on the word,  “US.” One being that the station is utilizing United States’ (U.S.) energy; and two being  that the CNG and propane provided are from “us,” the American people. CNG is  domestically abundant, clean, safe, quiet, powerful, efficient, and economical for the  United States. In addition, CNG is affordable, costing less than its gasoline and diesel counterparts,  and offers price stability, consistently sitting around $2.00/GGE (gas gallon  equivalent), while its counterparts, gasoline and diesel, often vary dramatically and are very dependent upon international affairs, particularly in the Middle East. The price of CNG looks to remain stable due to this nation’s abundant shale oil and gas reserves found throughout the country’s various shale formations. Perhaps more importantly, CNG offers America energy security and less of a dependence on foreign oil. Energy From US L.P. is a partnership between doctors Anant Gandhi, Kamlesh Gosai, and Shashi Kumar; businessmen Nainesh Desai and Dilip Desai; and builder... read more

Ground broken for Bentleyville CNG/propane station

Observer-Reporter By Rick Shrum Bentleyville, a longtime favorite of interstate truckers, is gassing up in a more contemporary way. Ground was broken Thursday evening for a compressed natural gas/propane refueling station in the borough. It will be at Big Jim’s Plaza, near Holiday Inn Express and Best Western hotels, off Route 917 South and a 90-second drive from Interstate 70, “This little town will see such an effect,” said Tejas Gosai, who helped to spearhead the drive for this station. CNG is fueling Marcellus Shale while being fueled by the formation. It is increasingly being used, in lieu of gasoline or diesel, by trucks operating in the oil and gas industry. And CNG is plentiful in the shale. In essence, it is methane stored at high pressure. Natural gas is safer than other fuels because, if spilled, it is light and disperses quickly. The station will be built in front of and to the right of the Holiday Inn Express property, and slightly to the left of TruPar America forklifts. Gosai, whose family owns those hotels, is an entrepreneur who also is chief executive officer of Shale Media Group. He said “a lot of buses,” including the Blue Bird line, and forklifts, operate with propane. Actually, as several speakers pointed out, installation of the station should include the qualifier “pending permits.” The project has to get proper approvals. If it does, there should be a fairly quick opening. “Pending permits, we hope to be open by Thanksgiving, said Bob Beatty, founder and managing partner of O Ring CNG Fuel Systems LP of Zelienople. Gosai said he and five partners... read more

Growing CNG Refueling Options

By: Judy Marody, Staff Writer, Shale Media Group Contribution By: Kristie Kubovic, Director of Communications, Shale Media Group Edited By: Mindy Gattner, Editor, Shale Media Group In a U.S. economy that still hasn’t completely recovered from the 2007–2009 recession, one of the few bright spots is a boom in the production of natural gas. Total domestic gas production jumped 34% from 2005 to 2012, while the estimated gas reserves have increased 50% in five years. With rapid production of shale gas in the U.S., natural gas prices in the country are at an all-time low. With today’s price differential between abundant natural gas and diesel and gasoline greater than ever, the interest in natural gas vehicles by policymakers, fleet owners and even consumers is growing at a record pace. Natural gas as a vehicle fuel presents numerous, inherent benefits. It displaces foreign oil, which has been a stated priority for every U.S. president since the Arab oil embargo in the early 1970s. It produces fewer greenhouse gases than gasoline or diesel fuel and it helps reduce urban pollution. Some people find these public policy benefits compelling enough to make the switch to natural gas vehicles (NGVs). However, for the majority of fleet owners and most consumers, it is all about economics. The biggest barrier to more rapid growth in NGV usage is fueling infrastructure. There are about 170,000 gasoline stations around the country. While 42 percent of these stations disperse diesel fuel, less than one percent (a little over 700) offer compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling options. Due of the limited fueling station availability, NGVs are not seeing the... read more

Energy from U.S. 1 Groundbreaking

By: Kristie Kubovic, Director of Communications, Shale Media Group Edited By: Mindy Gattner, Editor, Shale Media Group Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is domestically abundant, clean, safe, quiet, powerful, efficient, affordable and economical for the United States. Perhaps more importantly, it offers America energy security. CNG is slowly catching on across this country. Currently, there are just over 700 public CNG refueling stations in the United States. The number keeps growing; however, it is nowhere near the estimated 170,000 gasoline stations across this country. On Thursday, September 18th, Shale Media Group will celebrate the ground breaking for another CNG refueling station, Energy from U.S. 1, in Bentleyville, PA, near the Holiday Inn Express and Best Western properties, which gives it a prime location off of I-70. This will be one of only a handful of CNG refueling stations across southwestern Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania 46th District Senator Tim Solobay will be on hand with the ceremonial shovel for the groundbreaking. The project is a collaboration between Energy from U.S. 1, L.P., a group of doctors and attorneys, and “O” Ring CNG Fuel Systems, L.P., a full-service global CNG fuel solutions company based in Western Pennsylvania. The refueling unit will be the first of its kind offering both CNG and propane refueling options. An Energy from U.S. 1 representative said, “This will be the first of a series of stations along Interstates 70 and 79 in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio. There simply aren’t enough CNG stations. This is the classic chicken and egg scenario. People are a little hesitant to buy CNG vehicles due to the limited refueling options. In addition, many investors... read more

Groundbreaking for Energy from U.S. 1

By: Kristie Kubovic, Director of Communications, Shale Media Group Edited By: Mindy Gattner, Editor, Shale Media Group The groundbreaking for Energy from U.S. 1 was held the evening of Thursday, September 18, 2014, in front of the Holiday Inn Express in Bentleyville, PA. Energy from U.S. 1 is a new compressed natural gas (CNG) and propane refueling station. CNG is domestically abundant, clean, safe, quiet, powerful, efficient and economical for the United States.
