Austria's RAG breaks ground on country's first LNG station

RAG, Austrian exploration, production and gas storage company has started construction of the country’s first LNG-fueling station on Thursday, July 6. 

The company adds that the move comes in support a wider use of liquefied natural gas as fuel for heavy-duty transport.

The company added that the facility, being developed Chart Ferox, will have a single storage tank with a 32 cubic meters capacity and a maximum capacity to fuel 25 trucks per day.
