English Español Repsol, Nortegas agree the opening of a network of natural gas stations

The strategic partnership between Repsol and Nortegas will provide the general public with a network of natural gas for vehicle supply points at the Repsol Group service stations.

Last update:

Repsol and Nortegas Green Energy Solutions have signed an agreement to give momentum to the installation of a network of natural gas for vehicle (NGV) supply points at the Repsol Group service stations.

The first of the Repsol and Nortegas natural gas filling stations to be opened will be in Sestao (Bizkaia). The companies will invest nearly €400,000 in the first compressed natural gas (CNG) supply point, with the support of the Basque Energy Board (EVE) though its efficient mobility grant programme.

In addition, both companies have already a further two locations where pre-building work is on the point of getting underway, one in Madrid and another in Gipuzkoa

Nortegas expressed its “great satisfaction” with the agreement reached with Repsol, “a company with which we share our firm commitment to finding environmentally-friendly and efficient energy solutions, that are part of a sustainable energy mix”. In fact, “natural gas for vehicles is an ally in the decarbonisation process: it offers a clean alternative that is environmentally and economically efficient”.

Nortegas is also working on developing and implementing several biomethane production projects. The gas is obtained by upgrading the biogas generated in landfills or wastewater treatment plants. It can then be sold as natural gas for vehicles, thus adding greater value to this joint initiative.
