The Manheim CNG center can deliver up to 45 trucks per day of natural gas with an annual peak capacity of 5.7 billion cubic feet, the companies said in a statement.
The center will provide CNG to remote businesses and municipalities that cannot sufficiently be served from existing pipeline infrastructure.
