Gujarat Gas, India’s largest city gas distribution company is planning to add 130-150 compressed natural gas (CNG) stations annually which is about three times higher than the earlier targeted levels. The company has added 104 new CNG stations in financial year 2020-21 so far, taking the total to over 500.
The company has stated that about 50 per cent of the new CNG stations will be directly controlled and further nearly 75 per cent would be in new geographies. Most of the new stations are being planned to be set up at the city outskirts and highways along with liquefied natural gas facilities. The development will not only help in accelerating the adoption of cleaner automotive fuel, but also in saving foreign exchange.
