SoCalGas has opened its 15th public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) station in western Riverside County, Calif., the utility has announced.

Located in Murrieta, the 24-hour retail station is situated for trucks and other commercial vehicles traveling between Southern California locations, and it is accessible to all natural gas vehicles (NGVs). The infrastructure design features include a wider turning radius and ample space to allow for safe, efficient fueling for multiple vehicles.

"Fuel availability is a key requirement for any natural gas vehicle fleet operator and SoCalGas has worked to ensure that Southern California has one of the best CNG refueling networks in the U.S., one that continues to grow every year," said Mike Schneider, vice president of operations support & chief environmental officer, customer service and solutions for SoCalGas.

The new SoCalGas station features four dispenser hoses supported by significant storage for improved fill speed and increased reliability; modern nozzles similar to gasoline and diesel dispensers; and overhead canopies to protect customers from sun and rain.

"We are pleased to add the Murrieta station to our network and believe its location and truck-friendly design will make it a vital asset to NGV fleet operators and the growing numbers of heavy-duty trucking customers,” said Schneider.
