NEW YORK and BOSTON, May 6, 2014 (PR Newswire) — Xpress Natural Gas (XNG) today announced that it has expanded its operations into New York. XNG will supply Schweitzer-Mauduit International’s (SWM) Ancram, New York facility, with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). CNG is an efficient and cost effective alternative to oil. It is estimated businesses can save 30 to 40 percent on energy costs by converting to CNG.
SWM will receive CNG via tractor-trailer from a production facility and distribution terminal being built in partnership with Direct Energy. The Manheim, New York facility is anticipated to have completed construction and be fully operational by Q4 2014. In the meantime, SWM will receive gas from XNG’s facility in Eliot, Maine.
