Natural Gas Vehicles

Posted: Updated:

Oil flares of the Bakken burn off 200 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.

According to officials at Greenway Energy, that's enough natural gas to fuel every car in North Dakota.

Paul Jensen says the infrastructure is already in place --- as natural gas vehicle fuel would be distributed in the same way as natural gas heating fuel.

He says natural gas vehicles are less prevalent right now because gas stations are waiting for natural gas vehicles and vehicle owners are waiting for convenient fueling stations.

Jensen says natural gas vehicle fuel would sell around $1.50 and vehicles would get similar mileage.

(Paul Jensen, President Greenway Energy) "By using the natural gas for the transportation sector here, we'll get products cheaper to market. Be that grain, oil, or all the other things that we manufacture in North Dakota, we can get that cheaper to market by using a less costly fuel and a cleaner fuel."

The North Dakota legislature took steps forward for natural gas this session, funding two bills for further studies.
