Cabot’s George Stark Predicts More CNG Vehicles Coming

News from Hart Energy’s Marcellus Midstream Conference that was held in Pittsburgh earlier this week—a prediction about the future of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles:

Looking ahead five years, George Stark, the director of external affairs at Houston, Texas-based Cabot Oil and Gas, said the "low-hanging fruit" of gas development is building infrastructure to support vehicles that run on compressed natural gas, or CNG.

His company is building a CNG plant in Susquehanna County, and several have been built by other firms in the Pittsburgh region.

Most CNG vehicles found on the road today are a part of company fleets or public transportation buses, but domestic automakers in Detroit have announced plans to manufacture CNG cars in the United States in the coming years.*
