Refined Fuel Services:

CGRS has more than 30 years of experience in helping gas station owners comply with the EPA’s Financial Responsibility Regulation, which holds them  liable for cleanup of leaks and spills from their underground storage tanks and fuel-distribution systems. 

CGRS also provides a variety of design-build services for the refined-fuel industry including compressed natural gas stations and installation of bulk-fuel facilities at airports, truck stops, convenience stores and gas stations. If you’re an entrepreneur seeking to either expand your current locations or starting from the ground up, you’ve come to the right place.

Refined Fuel Project Spotlights:

Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport – Broomfield, CO

CGRS completed a design-build fuel system project for a private aircraft hangar. Project inclusions:

  • CGRS Engineering Department generated fuel-system design and specifications for project
  • Set a new 20,000-gallon Jet-A aboveground storage tank on a new concrete tank slab
  • Installed an approximately 1,400 lineal feet of double-wall fiberglass underground pipeline (6” over 4” supply line and a 4” over 3” return line). CGRS self-performed this entire work scope, including excavating and back-filling pipe trench during winter conditions
  • Set and piped to a remote fueling cabinet located at the new aircraft hangar
  • Installed a new tank monitoring system, which also monitors transition sumps, and provided client with training on use of system as well as remote access to system data
  • CGRS Environmental Department provided client with a new Spill Prevention and Control Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan for the site

Hat Six Travel Center – Evansville, WY

Correcting a mistake is always the right thing to do and is, in fact, part of CGRS policy no matter the cost. Sometimes having that kind of integrity will help not only retain a customer but also earn additional work. That’s exactly what happened in 2014 when CGRS hit a flex line while drilling a monitoring well near the then-Eastgate Travel Plaza, resulting in the loss of half of the travel center’s diesel fuel islands until repairs were made. Per its policy, CGRS not only repaired the line but also reimbursed the center’s owners for loss of business.

The owners were so impressed with CGRS’s integrity and quality of work in doing the repairs, they hired us to design and build the fueling portion of a new travel plaza. The process began in April 2015 and the diesel fueling system was up and running 13 months later. CGRS wrapped up the removal of the old fueling system and tanks that fall. The existing business and fueling system remained open and operational the entire time CGRS and subcontractor Andreen Hunt Construction, Inc., built the new center, now called Hat Six Travel Plaza, and removed the old fueling facilities.

The nearly $3 million job included installing:

  • Two 40,000-gallon, 75-foot-long underground storage tanks (USTs) for diesel fuel
  • One 8,000-gallon UST for diesel exhaust fluid
  • Two 30,000-gallon, double-wall, fiberglass USTs, one of which holds unleaded and the other is split to hold 12,000 gallons of premium unleaded fuel and the other 18,000 gallons of diesel
  • One 2,000-gallon propane AST and fueling system
  • One 15,000-gallon UST for Halliburton’s fueling operations
  • Two auto-fueling canopies with seven point-of-sale fueling islands
  • CNG infrastructure with masonry equipment enclosure and underground stainless steel piping to future dispensers
  • One truck-fueling canopy with eight diesel dispensers including DEF

Once the new center was completed, the owners sold the 13 old fueling dispensers and had CGRS and Andreen excavate and remove:

  • Three 20,000-gallon, two 12,000-gallon and one 5,000-gallon UST
  • The old fueling system for nine truck and four auto dispensers including piping and electrical work

The Hat Six Travel Plaza was the biggest project the CGRS Construction team had taken on at the time.
