A unit of Russian gas giant Gazprom began supplying liquefied natural gas (LNG) to locomotives owned by Russian Railways.

For the purpose, Gazprom Gazomotornoye Toplivo built a filling station for LNG trucks at the Egorshino railroad station in the Sverdlovsk Region.

The company won an open tender to supply LNG for Russian Railways. The fuel will be regularly delivered from the LNG production facilities of the Gazprom Group.

The company said that in total 600 tons of liquefied natural gas are planned to be delivered under the contract.

Currently, three natural gas units are in operation at the Egorshino-Serov-Sortirovochnoe section of the Sverdlovsk Railway.

Mikhail Likhachev, Gazprom Gazomotornoye Toplivo’s general director said that the natural gas fueling infrastructure for the Sverdlovsk Railway system is being developed under a cooperation agreement with Russian Railways with an aim to increase the use of LNG as fuel for rail transport.

He added that LNG fueling stations should be set up on the non-electrified sections of the railway.
