CNG piping provider opens customer advisory center

March 18, 2015

SSP has opened a CNG Plus Service Center in Tulsa, OK, which will advise and support customers in the region.

SSP produces instrumentation valves, tube fittings and tubing. The new center, opened in conjunction with Tulsa Gas Technologies, will provide support to local contractors. Services include assistance with bid preparation, training, equipment rental, and material supply for above ground and underground interconnect piping needed to build a CNG station.

“We had a great inaugural year in 2014, but need to move even faster for contractors building CNG stations. Tom Sewell at Tulsa Gas Technologies (TGT) was an early supporter of the new materials and methods we introduced, and urged us to find ways of making them available quicker and without the expense of less than truckload (LTL) shipments from Ohio,” said Gregg Lennon, CNG Plus application engineer for SSP. “Tom and TGT were not only the inspiration, but also a willing partner with SSP.  Tulsa Gas Technologies has 24 years of experience building stations around the world.  Being able to provide CNG Plus tooling, training, and materials is a logical extension for their business.”

Tulsa Gas Technologies is the largest manufacturer of CNG dispensers in North America.

According to SSP, CNG station owners will benefit from lower installation costs, staged tooling and in-stock tubing.

“SSP is helping us minimize waste and reduce construction time from days to hours with products such as 5500 PSI ¾ in. coiled tubing, valves and fittings,” said Sewell, president, Tulsa Gas Technologies. “We’re installing complete CNG systems including the dispenser, compressors and storage vessels and facilitating quicker grand openings.”

In 2014, SSP CNG Plus  products and services were used on 40 stations, approximately 20% of the stations constructed in the US.
