Gastec Chairman Abdel Fattah Farahat has signed two contracts with the General Secretary of Qalyubia Governorate Ihab Serag El-Din to establish new two natural gas stations and liquid fuels in Qalyubia.
One of the stations will serve those coming from Al-Qanater Al-Khairiya and Menoufia to Al-Hadtha Bridge and the city of Qalyoub, with a capacity of supply about 500 cars per day with natural gas. While the second station will be an integrated station which will supply the cars coming from Shubra Al-Kheima and from the Cairo-Alexandria Agricultural Road to the Nile Corniche with a capacity of about 700 cars per day. This station will also provide liquid fuel products of various types, in addition to other services provided to citizens.
This protocol comes as part of the presidential initiative to expand the construction and operation of more natural gas stations to cover all the Egyptian governorates, Abdul Hamid Al-Hagan, Governor of Qalyubia said.
Gastec aims to implement an expanded plan to open and operate many natural gas stations in the various governorates as part of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources’ strategy of using natural gas as clean and sustainable fuel. It targets to establish 350 stations in 26 governorates.
