Natural gas filling station moves forward in Springville

December 10, 2018. The operators of a compressed natural gas (CNG) transfer station scheduled to go online in Springville Twp. have satisfied all initial township requirements and will meet with the planning board later this month to meet any county demands.

   NG Advantage of Colchester, Vermont, purchased the 61-acre former Cabot Oil and Gas property off of Phillips Road with plans of using it as a filling station for their compressed natural gas trucks.

   Springville Board of Supervisors Chairman Charlie Clark said that the township has granted NG Advantage all the permitting they need to proceed.

   Before the county planning board granted NG Advantage preliminary approval in August, officials told the board it expects to service as many as 100 trucks a day, said County Planning Director Robert G. Templeton.

    Changes NG Advantage plans to make to the property include modifying the existing filling station to include three filling islands with a canopy and installing additional compression equipment. Other additions include a 12 by 20 foot building for electrical equipment as well as another 10 by 12 foot building for water quality.
