Denark Launches CNG Division

CNG

Denark Construction, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) division.

CNG is a readily available alternative to gasoline that’s made by compressing natural gas to less than 1% of its volume at standard atmospheric pressure. Consisting mostly of methane, CNG is odorless, colorless and tasteless. It’s drawn from domestically drilled natural gas wells or in conjunction with crude oil production.

As gasoline prices continue to rise, interest in CNG is rising, and with good reason – CNG costs about 50% less than gasoline or diesel, emits up to 90% fewer emissions than gasoline and there’s an abundant supply right here in America. So it’s clean, affordable, abundant and American.

Denark’s CNG experience includes both Time-Fill and Fast-Fill stations:
