Range Resources Corp. on Tuesday unveiled its new company fleet of trucks that run on compressed natural gas.
The Texas-based oil and gas operator, whose regional headquarters is in Southpointe, said it has about 184 CNG vehicles. Of those, about 100 are in southwestern Pennsylvania. The fleet is a mix of Ram 2500 and Chevrolet Silverado 2500 pick-ups, which were factory-engineered as CNG vehicles.
Range joins other Marcellus operators, such as Chesapeake Energy and EQT Corp., who’ve announced a transition in their fleets to CNG.
For now, most of the Range trucks here are filling up at Waste Management’s CNG fueling station in Washington, but Range spokesman Mark Windle said the company is considering whether to partner with another firm to build a dedicated station, or to go it alone.
