With sizable transportation demands throughout Seaboard Foods integrated system, HPB CNG supports the energy
needs of Seaboard Foods’ compressed natural gas powered vehicles.
High Plains Bioenergy, a subsidiary of Seaboard Foods, also delivers fleet-focused natural gas solutions,
opening its first 24/7 public CNG filling station, located across from Seaboard Foods’ pork processing plant
at 3271 Highway 54 in Guymon, Oklahoma. The addition of this station ensures the availability of CNG to
Seaboard Foods fleets and others.
Seaboard Foods continues to pursue additional opportunities to enhance CNG usage and enthusiastically welcomes
the opportunity to lend industry expertise to its partners and others interested in building CNG fleets.
What is CNG?
CNG is an alternative fuel to diesel or gasoline. It is the same natural gas commonly used in most homes
and industrial processes. As a motor fuel, natural gas is pressurized at a fueling station, which provides
energy for vehicles specifically designed to run on natural gas.
Benefits of CNG
CNG is affordable, costing less than diesel or gasoline, in many cases 30 to 50 percent less.
In addition, CNG burns much cleaner than gasoline or diesel because it primarily consists of methane, the
cleanest burning of all fossil fuels. It decreases particulate matter emissions by as much as 90 percent,
greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 20 percent and NOx emissions by as much as 50 percent compared to
North America produces 98 percent of the natural gas consumed in the United States, and the United States is
the largest producer of it in the world, making it the most domestic transportation fuel available.
CNG vehicles and fueling stations are designed and built with a focus on safety. The standards of safety are
meant to meet or exceed those of their gasoline and diesel counterparts.
