LNG is an alternative fuel that has growth potential in recent years due to its energy efficiency and low environmental impact as an alternative to fossil fuels, contributing to the fulfillment of Portugal's environmental objectives.
Portuguese transport companies have been investing in a fleet of gas-powered vehicles, which already represent significant consumption in this segment in Portugal. Even LNG supply benefits from the supply model via an LNG-powered vehicle.
Portugal's mobility plan consists of installing an LNG station every 400 or 450 km and in cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants and in all district capitals. Portugal's service station network includes 11 stations that supply LNG (liquefied natural gas). Taking into account that there are already some units in operation, the project aims to build new stations, with an investment of about 15 million euros in the Portuguese network.
