El Molla Inaugurates Gastec/Eni Integrated Fueling Station in Alexandria Governorate

Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El Molla accompanied by Mohamed El Sherif, Governor of Alexandria, inaugurated the Gastec/Eni integrated gas station to supply cars with natural gas, liquid fuel and other services at Kilo 38 in Alexandria Governorate.

The minister emphasized the continuation of increasing the outlets supplying natural gas as a fuel to keep pace with the growth in reliance on it as a fuel within the system of providing fuel in the local market. This has many advantages, including that it is clean, environmentally friendly, low cost and demonstrates a high level of performance.

El Molla highlighted the importance of the role played by Gastec and Cargas, the two arms of the petroleum sector, along with private sector companies, in implementing the plan for the rapid deployment of natural gas supply outlets as fuel. He stated that the two companies enjoy extensive experience gained from the long history of providing gas services in the local market and the presence of two distinguished partners Eni and bp.

Meanwhile, El Sherif explained that the integrated station at Kilo 38 has become a facade worthy of the distinguished level presented by the petroleum sector in all its fields, and is added to its valuable contributions to Alexandria Governorate.

The audience listened to a presentation by Abdelfattah Farahat, President of Gastec, saying that the opening and operation of the integrated station comes within the framework of the strategy of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources to develop fuel supply services and expand the establishment of natural gas supply stations in various governorates.

The operating capacity of the Kilo 38 natural gas station is 1,600 cubic meters per hour. It has a capacity to supply about 2,000 cars with natural gas per day.

The station is characterized by the use of the advanced form of gas distributors suspended in the charging stations in order to save space in the supply area, and increase safety rates, as all components of the distributor are placed in the control rooms away from the freight. It is what allows large areas in the stations that can be used in various activities to serve customers.

The integrated station also provides services for supplying liquid petroleum products (benzene 92 – benzene 95 – diesel) to the public through 12 petrol supply points and four diesel supply points, in addition to other services.

The station also provides international services for Eni’s lubricants, which Gastec is an exclusive distributor for in Egypt.

The integrated station is the second one between Gastec and Eni to be opened and operated in Alexandria Governorate, within 12 stations in the governorates of Damietta, Cairo, Gharbia, Assiut, Sohag, Qena, Beni Suef, and Ismailia.
