The Egyptian International Gas Technology (GASTEC)’s Head, Abdel Fattah Farahat, met with South Sinai Governor, Khaled Fouda, where they discussed establishing the first natural gas car filling station in Sharm El Sheikh in 2018, Al Mal News reported.

The governorate will set a land for the construction of an integrated filling station to provide cars with natural gas, along with a center for transferring vehicles to be working with duel fuels, natural gas and benzene.

This comes as a part of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources’s strategy to expand natural gas fueling services across governorates and to increase filling stations.

GASTEC, in cooperation with Sinai Gas Company, will study requirements for delivering natural gas to Abu Zenima City, in light of establishing an industrial zone in it.
