U.S. Gain (GAIN® Clean Fuel), has partnered with compressed natural
gas (CNG) provider and station builder, “O” Ring CNG Fuel Systems, LP
(“O” Ring CNG) and its affiliates to co-brand “O” Ring CNG’s existing
CNG stations as “O” Ring CNG / GAIN Clean Fuel and incorporate them into
U.S. Gain’s nationwide infrastructure of CNG stations.
“O” Ring CNG is a full-service CNG fuel solutions company based in
Western Pennsylvania whose goal is to promote the use of CNG as a clean
abundant and economical North American energy source. It currently owns
and operate four CNG stations, all located in Pennsylvania, and has
built over a dozen others for clients. Several more CNG station
locations are slated for completion 2015- 2016.
“This is a great opportunity for “O” Ring CNG and U.S. Gain,” said
Bill Renz, general manager for U.S. Gain. “’The “O” Ring CNG sites are
strategically located along significant carrier routes and, with U.S.
Gain’s agreements with carriers operating in the Northeast, we are able
to provide additional access to GAIN CNG to our partner fleets. It’s
truly a win-win for everyone.”
Through this partnership, U.S. Gain will have a total of 43 stations
in operation or under construction throughout the United States. In
addition, the partnership enables “O” Ring CNG to leverage U.S. Gain’s
CNG stations for use with its partner carriers.
“This new partnership is a strategic alliance for us to further our
commitment to energy security in America on a larger scale and at an
accelerated pace, while still maintaining our goals of creating local
opportunities for the benefit of PA and extending outward,” said “O”
Ring CEO Robert Beatty.
“O” Ring CNG station projects are vertically integrated throughout
all aspects of design, implementation and building, ending with a
sustainable energy product for the future that is economically and
environmentally sound, creates lasting fiscal benefits for local
businesses and consumers, and at the same time helps to improve the air
quality by reducing harmful emissions produced by fleets travelling
within and through the tri-state region on a daily basis.
Similar to GAIN® Clean Fuel stations, all “O” Ring stations provide
easy-access, fast-fill capabilities. They also accept fleet cards for
truck convenience and have proven reliability to ensure that fleets have
a consistent fuel source. They are open for use by other fleets and the
This partnership continues to build on U.S. Gain’s goal of having
more than 100 GAIN stations in operation within the next two years. “We
have a clear mission of providing carriers with access to CNG that’s
significantly cheaper than diesel fuel and produces fewer emissions,”
Renz explains. “We’re excited about this partnership as it allows us to
continue that mission.”
