Gazprom Germania acquires CNG filling stations in Baden-Württemberg

Gazprom Germania, Gazprom Export’s 100% subsidiary, expands its network of natural gas filling stations. Gazprom Germania and German utility EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg (EnBW) signed an agreement on April 24, 2015, that will see Gazprom Germania acquire four natural gas filling stations in Stuttgart and Nagold from EnBW on May 1, 2015.

“With this acquisition, we’re advancing the further expansion of our network of natural gas filling stations in Germany, and, for the first time, contributing to making mobility in Baden-Württemberg more environmentally friendly”, says Timo Vehrs, Director of Business Development at Gazprom Germania. The acquisition will bring the number of natural gas filling stations Gazprom Germania operates in Germany to 28. Gazprom Germania plans to be running 35 stations by the end of 2015.

“We’re very happy to have found a reliable partner in Gazprom Germania that will keep serving our customers and keep the stations operating in the long term”, says Volkmar Langefeld, Group Expert for Gas at EnBW.

Natural gas is becoming increasingly important as a fuel for motor vehicles. There are almost 100,000 natural gas vehicles registered in Germany, and that number is increasing: last year, Germany’s Federal Motor Transport Authority registered over 9,100 new natural gas commercial vehicles and cars — 2.3 % more than in the previous year.
