Plans submitted to Tupelo’s Development Services department show the conversion of a the Exxon gas station on McCullough Boulevard to an LNG (liquid natural gas) station.
Utah-based Blu. refers to the site as its Belden station, and the company, according to its website, has other LNG stations in the works in Memphis and Birmingham.
And it seems the Tupelo/Belden Blu. station would be the state’s first LNG station.
Company officials have not returned requests for additional information about the project.
Here’s what Blu says it does:
Blu. is a total solution provider for Liquefied Natural Gas fueling applications: trucking, mining, marine, industrial, and more.
Blu. is developing the infrastructure for natural gas vehicles by building and operating liquefied natural gas stations. Blu.’s truck lease and conversion kit programs help companies utilize the benefits of LNG.
Blu’.s highly experienced team of industry experts is committed to bringing the benefits of natural gas to the United States.
As fleets convert to natural gas, our air gets cleaner, companies cut costs and we reduce our dependence on foreign energy. These are outcomes that we can all live with.
