NGV Refueling Infrastructure on Track for 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia
The Gazprom Management Committee reviewed the information about the Company’s ongoing efforts to develop the domestic natural gas vehicle (NGV) market and about the readiness of the NGV refueling infrastructure for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.
The Company is building new CNG stations and platforms for mobile refuelers, as well as installing CNG modules at the existing filling stations. In addition, the operating NGV infrastructure is undergoing renovations.
A total of 47 CNG stations will be active in the host cities (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kaliningrad, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Saransk, Sochi, Volgograd, and Yekaterinburg). In 2017, four more CNG stations joined the network of 36 stations, and another seven stations will be put in operation by the start of the tournament.
In 2017, Gazprom constructed and renovated 23 NGV refueling facilities, and the company’s sales in the NGV market grew by 9.5 percent against 2016.
