Austria gets first LNG filling station

The Ennshafen LNG filling station

Austria’s RAG on Tuesday opened the country’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) filling station at Ennshafen port.

As previously reported, the construction on the LNG filling station started in July this year.

Approximately 12 tonnes of LNG can be kept in storage at the Ennshafen site at present – equivalent to the amount required to refuel between 60 and 90 trucks, according to a statement by RAG.

RAG delivers natural gas using its own LNG tankers. Some of the gas comes from RAG’s gas reservoirs in Austria, and is processed at the company’s LNG plant in Gampern, Upper Austria.

Currently, about two tonnes of LNG a day is produced there, which can then be used at the Ennshafen LNG filling station. This is enough to refuel 10-15 LNG-powered trucks a day, the statement notes.

The company is also planning to expand its own LNG production and to open further LNG filling stations on major transport routes in Tyrol, Upper Austria, Styria and the Vienna area.
