Shell launches four new German LNG filling stations

Energy giant Shell said it has opened four new LNG retail stations for heavy-duty road transport sector in Germany since the beginning of this year.

This means that LNG-powered trucks can now refuel at twelve Shell stations in the country, Shell’s German unit said in a statement on Thursday.

The latest Shell LNG stations are located in Uffenheim, Herzsprung, Sittensen, and Ramstein. The next one should open soon in Jettingen-Scheppach.

Moreover, Shell plans to double the number of LNG filling stations in Germany to 25 in total by the end of this year, it said.

In addition to building filling stations, Shell also aims to boost the use of bio-LNG.

In that regard, the firm announced plans last year to construct a small biomethane liquefaction plant at its Godorf refinery near Cologne.

The plant will have a capacity of about 100,000 tons, supplying Shell’s network of LNG stations by trucks.

Shell said in the new statement it had submitted an application to build the facility to the local authorities.

The plant should start delivering bio-LNG in 2023, according to Shell.

Besides Germany, Shell is building a network of LNG stations in Europe as part of the BioLNG EuroNet consortium.

The consortium will build a pan-European network of 39 LNG refueling sites in Poland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Spain.

These stations will be deployed on existing diesel sites, on or near key locations on main TransEuropean Transport Network nodes and corridors.
