Rosneft Developing Compressed Natural Gas Filling Station Network in Saratov Region

30 June 2022

Rosneft has opened the new format Zerno filling station in Engels, Saratov region. Drivers can now fill up their cars with compressed natural gas (CNG), which is an environmentally friendly and economical fuel, as well as enjoy new services.

Among the key priorities of Rosneft’s retail business is the development of a network of gas filling compressor stations for vehicles. The new filling station with CNG filling capability is already the fourth in the Saratov region.

The use of compressed gas increases the maximum mileage per tank, which lowers the cost of operation and improves vehicle efficiency. The development of the CNG network is in accordance with the Russian President’s instruction to expand the use of natural gas as a motor fuel, as well as the priorities outlined in Rosneft’s strategy.

The Company is developing a filling station network in the retail segment. Nowadays, the network of gas stations and modules at filling stations consists of 16 facilities in the Voronezh, Saratov and Ulyanovsk regions, the Stavropol Territory, Ingushetia and Udmurtia. Rosneft plans to launch up to 200 gas filling stations by 2028 as part of its Gas Filling Infrastructure Development Programme.

The new concept of the Zerno filling station emphasises the delivery of an extended range of offered services. The area and the main building of the station are divided into functional zones, which increases the speed and convenience of customer service. The filling station includes a set of digital services for remote vehicle filling.

Note for Editors:

Rosneft owns the largest retail network in Russia. The Company’s business footprint covers the majority of the Russian regions.

In 2019, Rosneft has become a member of the National Gas Vehicle Association where it will continue to develop the gas-vehicle market and increase the level of use of natural gas as motor fuel.
