Russia’s highest-powered CNG station to open in Moscow


A working meeting on the use of gas as a vehicle fuel in public transportation took place in Moscow, Gazprom reported on November 2, 2017.

Taking part in the meeting were Viktor Zubkov, Chairman of the Gazprom Board of Directors, Kirill Molodtsov, Deputy Minister of Energy of Russia, Maxim Liksutov, Head of the Moscow Department for Transport and Road Infrastructure Development, and Mikhail Likhachev, Gen. Directorof Gazprom Gazomotornoye Toplivo.

Currently, there is 1 active CNG station owned by the Gazprom in the area along the Moscow Ring Road.

In November 2017, a new CNG station of Gazprom will be brought into operation on Moscow’s Levoberezhnaya Street.

With the capacity of 29.8 million cubic meters of gas per year, it will be the most high-performance CNG station in Russia.

It is planned to complete the construction of another 8 stations in 2018.

In its turn, the Moscow Government will continue to purchase natural gas-fueled buses and municipal vehicles.

Today, there are 155 gas-fueled buses in operation in Moscow. There are also plans to purchase 181 more passenger vehicles in the 1st half of 2018.

«Moscow is one of today’s most promising NGV markets. In the coming years, the city’s automakers will be able to boost the economic efficiency of passenger transportation by converting vehicles to gas and cutting fuel expenses. Natural gas conversion will be beneficial to the environment as well. This is why we need to actively promote cooperation between Gazprom and the Moscow Government on the use of gas as a vehicle fuel,» said Viktor Zubkov.

There are currently 9 active CNG filling stations in Moscow and the Moscow Region, of which 1 is owned by Gazprom and 8 by Mosavtogaz.
