XNG building, expanding CNG hubs

Tue, Sep 24th, 2013

Xpress Natural Gas plans to add a distribution hub in Eliot early next year and plans to expand its existing Baileyville distribution hub by the end of 2013.

Boston-based Xpress Natural Gas is increasing its footprint in Maine with plans to build a second compressed natural gas distribution hub in Eliot by early next year and increase capacity at its Baileyville operation by 40% this year.

"We still have permitting to go through, but if there are any delays on those fronts, we have backup locations as well," John Nahill, XNG's president and CEO, says of the Eliot expansion.

Nahill told Mainbiz the new facility will help the company meet a growing demand for its truck delivered fuel. Nahill says the company's Baileyville hub had sold out since starting earlier this year, as the company brought on clients including paper mills in Madison and Lincoln and hospitals in Presque Isle and Caribou. Before the end of the year, Nahill says he expects to begin deliveries to Great Northern Paper mill in Millinocket and clients in New Hampshire.

With a location in the southernmost part of the state, near interstates 95, 495, and 93,Nahill says the company will be able to reach customers in New Hampshire, southern Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts.
