Gas Demand Rockets

GASREC, which operates the UK’s largest network of natural gas refuelling stations for commercial vehicles, has recorded a 369% rise in demand for gas during the first half of 2019, versus the previous six months.

Volumes of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquified natural gas (LNG) grew by 286% and 393% respectively, and Gasrec expects this growth will be sustained across the second half of 2019.

James Westcott, chief commercial officer at Gasrec, says: ‘Launches last year from Iveco, Scania and Volvo are starting to have a real impact, as customer deliveries follow trials with seed vehicles and demonstrators. As the volumes show, we’re pumping significantly more gas than we were six months ago, and it’s increasing every week.
