Gazprom Germania buys 4 gas filling stations

Gazprom Germania, a unit of Russian gas giant Gazprom, informed on Monday it is expanding its network of natural gas filling stations.

The company and Hesse-based utility Entega signed an agreement that will see Gazprom Germania retroactively acquire four natural gas filling stations in the Darmstadt area effective August 1.

The current discourse around diesel shows that we need a broader mix of alternative fuels. That’s why we’ve acquired natural gas filling stations in the Rhine-Main area for the first time. We see great potential in natural gas for eco-friendly mobility”, says Timo Vehrs, Director of Business Development at Gazprom Germania.

The acquisition brings the number of stations Gazprom Germania operates in Germany to 34.

According to Gazprom Germania, natural gas vehicles are among Germany’s most popular alternative-drive vehicles, with around 100,000 registered.

The company plans to be operating at least 44 natural gas filling stations in Germany by the end of 2016.
