Egypt Converts 270,000 Vehicles into Gas-Powered Ones

0

Egypt converted a total of 270,000 vehicles into natural gas-powered ones instead of fueled ones since the onset of the conversion activities until March 2019, a source at Natural Gas Vehicles Company (Car gas) told Amwal Al Ghad.

The country transformed around 2,600 vehicles per month into the gas-power system, the source noted, adding that pumping natural gas into vehicles is done via 200 gas stations across the country.

The Egyptian oil and gas sector plans to increase the number of stations responsible for the conversion system to reach 80 stations during fiscal year (FY) 2019/20.

Egypt seeks to make natural gas a substitute for diesel, gasoline and butane to decrease the dependence on those products and reduce its imports as the country’s natural gas production grew to around 6.5 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d).
