Natural Gas – Conversions, Vehicles and Technology

2 Natural Gas Fueling Stations Coming to Lafayette, La.

January 17, 2012

LAFAYETTE, LA – The city-parish government of Lafayette, La., plans to open a new natural gas fueling station at its public works facility on East University Avenue by next fall. Meanwhile, Apache Corp. is constructing another local natural gas fueling station that’s expected to open next month, the Advocate newspaper reported. 

Both stations will be open to the public.

Lafayette’s city-parish fleet operations are acquiring new natural gas-powered buses and converting at least 40 vehicles to run on natural gas. Private fleets servicing the local oil and gas industry are also expected to use the fueling stations after they open for business.

Lafayette already has added five natural gas-powered buses to its city-parish fleet. A temporary station was installed to refuel them in the meantime. 

Lafayette will use federal grants and state appropriations to pay for the $1.7 million fueling station at the public works facility.
