A new service from U.S. Energy Services is designed to assist trucking fleets in determining the economic viability of using compressed natural gas (CNG).

The ThinkTank Services will provide CNG economic analysis, station design requirements, site development, supply management and data management services.

According to the company, ThinkTank walks clients through the process of converting a fleet to CNG. Front end economic analysis allows U.S. Energy to estimate whether the cost savings associated with conversion will provide a high return on investment (ROI) and quick payback. 

U.S. Energy also will manage the request for proposal process, dealing with CNG station contractors and vendors and analyzing their plans to provide customers with thoughtful, strategic recommendations. In addition, U.S. Energy will provide on-going operational services, managing the purchase and delivery of natural gas and ensuring that clients get the best prices available. 

“Companies operating vehicle fleets all over the country are realizing the value of converting to CNG,” said Bill Bathe, CEO of U.S. Energy Services. “Our expertise is a natural fit for helping them decide whether or not it’s the best fit and how they can optimize their investment and get the best results.”
