Gastec, Cargas and ExxonMobil companies have signed a cooperation protocol for adding facilities to supply natural gas inside ExxonMobil fuel stations, a press release reported.
According to the agreement, the three parties will start the first phase of establishing facilities for supplying cars with compressed natural gas (CNG) in an average of 50 stations, followed by another phase targeting ExxonMobil stations across Egypt.

In attendance of Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Tarek El Molla, the protocol was signed by Abdel Fattah Farahat, Chairman of Gastec, Hassanen Mohamed, Chairman of Cargas and Sherif Serag El Dine, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Exxon Mobil Egypt.

El Molla highlighted that the expansion of using CNG helped in  increasing  the usage of natural gas, integrating new technologies, finding innovative solutions such as mobile stations, and enhancing cooperation between companies of the petroleum sector and private ones.

On this occasion, Serag El Dine said “Providing facilities for supplying natural gas for vehicles in some of Exxon Mobil stations in cooperation with Gastec and Cargas comes in line with the Egyptian government plan to expand the usage of natural gas as fuel as well as the company’s keenness to provide the highest level products and services to its customers.”

“As the company believes that keeping pace with the requirements of the energy market is primarily in the interest of consumers, the company has also launched “Mobil Multigrade 20W50”, one of the latest oils launched by Mobil with a new composition suitable for use in cars that run on gasoline and natural gas as it protects the engine from corrosion and raises its efficiency as well as the lifespan of the car. This new product keeps pace with the current trends of switching to natural gas,” Serag El Dine added.
