Boston Firm to Bring NatGas to Energy Desert on Olympic Peninsula


Boston-based Xpress Natural Gas (XNG) has plans to bring truckloads of compressed natural gas (CNG) to the energy-starved Olympic Peninsula in the Pacific Northwest on the western side of Puget Sound opposite Seattle.

An XNG spokesperson confirmed the yet-to-be-announced plans for NGI on Thursday. The company has been doing something similar in New England (see Daily GPI, Dec. 31, 2013).

The cornerstone of the plan is to build a CNG distribution terminal in Puyallup, WA, connected to Williams’ interstate Northwest Pipeline Co. system next year and begin truck deliveries of CNG to an energy-intensive Port Townsend Paper Corp. paper and pulp mill that is switching from oil to natural gas at the northern end of the peninsula.
