Rostov, June 19 - Neftegaz.RU. A Gazprom delegation led by Viktor Zubkov, Chairman of the company’s Board of Directors, visited a renovated CNG filling station of Gazprom in Aksai during a business trip to the Rostov Region.
Natural gas is the most eco-friendly, cost-effective and safe of conventional vehicle fuels. The use of natural gas as a vehicle fuel helps reduce harmful emissions, which is especially important in major cities, and cut the costs of passenger and cargo transportation.
In preparation for the World Cup, Gazprom made extensive efforts to build state-of-the-art NGV refueling infrastructure in all of the 11 host cities. The efforts involved 47 CNG stations, of which seven were built and four were renovated this year.
«By the start of the World Cup, Gazprom renovated 4 stations here in the Rostov Region: 2 in Rostov-on-Don, 1 in Aksai, and 1 in Bataisk. The upgraded CNG stations supply natural gas to 50 large buses acquired for the event by the regional administration, as well as to gas-fueled taxi fleets. Overall, Gazprom’s program for the construction and renovation of NGV refueling infrastructure prior to the global football championship is 100 % complete. Today, 47 facilities in 11 host cities provide vehicles with natural gas,» said Viktor Zubkov.
