Shell launches first LNG fueling station in Hungary

LNG giant Shell continues to expand its network of liquefied natural gas stations for vehicles in Europe and has opened its first station in Hungary.

According to a statement by Shell’s unit in Hungary, the firm opened the station on April 13 in Szigetszentmikloson on the M0 ring road which connects a series of Trans-European corridors.

The station will supply LNG, and in the future bio-LNG, to trucks in Hungary but also freight traffic to countries such as Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania, Slovenia, and Slovakia, it said.

Shell is planning to open more LNG fueling stations in the CEE (Central and Eastern Europe) region.

European network of LNG fueling stations for vehicles currently has 661 stations, according to data by Gmobility, previously known as NGVA Europe.

Germany continues to host the highest amount of LNG stations for trucks with 165 stations, followed by Italy with 137, the data shows.

Shell is one the largest owners of LNG fueling stations, and these are located in Germany, the Netherlands, etc.

The firm is also investing in bio-LNG and is offering the fuel to its customers in the Netherlands from Nordsol’s facility in Amsterdam Westpoort.

It is also building its Rheinland bio-LNG plant in Germany.

In addition, Shell recently completed its deal worth nearly $2 billion to buy 100 percent shareholding of Denmark-based biogas producer Nature Energy Biogas.

This deal supports its efforts to transition its growing European LNG customer base to bio-LNG, with supply intended to span road, marine, and other customers, Shell previously said.
