Russia’s Gazprom kicked off the construction of its first cryogenic filling station near Okulovka, Novgorod region, on the Moscow – St. Petersburg highway. 

The cryogenic filling station will be used primarily for fueling heavy-duty trucks with LNG, Gazprom said.

Gazprom is constructing NGV refueling infrastructure along the M-11 highway, part of the North-South and Europe–China international transit routes, as part of the cooperation with Avtodor. A total of six cryogenic filling stations will be built there.

In October 2017, Gazprom and Avtodor signed the action plan to develop the gas filling infrastructure along the federal highways under the responsibility of Avtodor.

The projected highway traffic will be about 5,000 trucks a day, with some of them to be powered by LNG.

Europe–China international transit route is an investment project spanning Russia, Kazakhstan, and China, over 8,000 kilometers long.

Efforts to create natural gas filling infrastructure along the Europe–China route are being taken as part of the cooperation between Gazprom, CNPC, and KazMunayGas, as agreed in a memorandum signed on October 5, 2017.
