Using Natural Gas To Fuel Vehicles

Posted:

North Dakota flares around 200 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.

That's enough to fuel around 800,000 vehicles.

This afternoon a seminar is held in Bismarck to educate fleet owners about how the fuel works.

Natural gas is not only cheaper but it also has a positive environmental impact.

Currently there are 600 stations across the country that fuel Natural Gas vehicles.

Those here today, say they want more in North Dakota.

"We want to have more stations available here for the general public so we're pushing forward with these courses with these seminars to inform people about what it takes to use Natural Gas, because it's distributed in the existing pipeline system throughout the state," Paul Jensen with Green Way Smart Transportation said.

There are two Natural Gas stations in North Dakota, one in Bismarck and one in Dickinson.

However, the stations are owned by MDU, which doesn't want to be a retailer in the long run.
