Gazprom has announced that construction has commenced on its first cryogenic filling station on the new Moscow – St. Petersburg highway (M11).

The station – located at the Valdai mixed-use highway service area – will be used mostly for fuelling heavy-duty trucks with LNG. In the statement, Gazprom claims that it is building NGV refuelling infrastructure along the M11 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.

Vitaly Markelov, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, said: “The conversion of trucks to natural gas will help improve the environmental situation in transit cities and towns and cut down shipping costs due to fuel savings. Creating state-of-the-art gas filling facilities on the Russian part of the Europe – China transit route is a crucial task that Gazprom is focused on today.”
