Cleaner fueling options for commercial vehicles in India

22 Oct 2021

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage and dispensing facilities are being installed in retail gas stations in India that currently only provide diesel and gasoline. Tractebel has been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract for two of these stations.



As part of the government’s initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, LNG will soon be available at fueling stations for dispensing to long-haul trucks in the southern Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

Tractebel oversees LNG fueling stations from start to finish

Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, an Indian government-owned company, has selected our Gas and Energy experts for the overall design, detailed engineering, project management and construction supervision at two locations. We are also assisting with the procurement of LNG equipment like cryogenic tanks, dispensers, pumps and associated fittings. Once operational, the LNG stations will provide commercial vehicle operators with increased access to cleaner fuel, thereby driving a reduction in vehicular pollution. The LNG fueling stations are expected to open in July 2022.

“A top priority of the Clean India Green India sustainability plan is to reduce vehicle pollution, a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions throughout the country. We are pleased to be a part of the initiative by providing LNG as a cleaner alternative at retail fueling stations. Expanding the availability of LNG will help reduce the volume of harmful CO2 emissions, an essential step in stopping the clock on climate change.”
