amp Trillium Opens Compressed Natural Gas Stations in Brock and Kerrville, Texas

The Joint Venture Between ampCNG and Trillium CNG Now Operates Seven CNG Stations in Texas

BROCK, TX and KERRVILLE, TX--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - amp Trillium, LLC, the joint venture between ampCNG and Trillium CNG, today announced that it has opened two new public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) stations in Texas. Located at I-20 330 FM 1189 in Brock and I-10 3050 Fredericksburg North in Kerrville, the stations will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are easily accessible by Class-8 trucks.

The opening of these two stations in Texas affirms amp Trillium's commitment to creating a nationwide network of CNG refueling stations along trucking corridors throughout the United States. Together, Chicago-based ampCNG and Trillium CNG now operate seven CNG stations across Texas and 19 CNG stations across the country. The new stations in Brock and Kerrville bring necessary refueling locations to the I-20 and I-10 corridors, respectively.

Donna Rolf, President of ampCNG, said: "Since September 2014, the number of natural gas fueling stations in Texas has increased by 25 percent. We're working hard to enable the use of CNG throughout Texas and are excited to have come one step closer with the opening of these new stations in Brock and Kerrville."

Mary Boettcher, President of Trillium CNG, added: "The amp Trillium CNG network in Texas enables us to meet the rapidly increasing demand for CNG in the state. The fuel's low cost and low carbon emissions coupled with the reliability of our high-performance fast-fill network make natural gas an ideal alternative to petroleum-based fuels for fleets in Texas."

The new stations, which are capable of fueling three Class-8 trucks simultaneously, will primarily service CNG trucks operated by haulers for the dairy industry.
