Compressed natural gas vehicles promoted in Japan

Dec 30, 1997 01:00 AM

Representatives of Japan's city gas companies said they will promote vehicles powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) by building more CNG filling stations and using more CNG vehicles for company business.
Tokyo Gas Co. will boost the number of its CNG stations from 15 to 19 by the end of March. At the same time, the company will ask filling stations that sell LPG to build CNG stations next to existing facilities.
There are about 270 LPG filling stations in the Tokyo metropolitan area, but growth in demand has been limited as a growing number of taxies have switched from LPG to gasoline.
Osaka Gas Co. said it will gradually replace its gasoline-powered company cars with CNG cars. By fiscal 2003, 2,800 of Osaka Gas's fleet of 3,000 cars will be CNG vehicles. The cars will display a sign indicating that they run on natural gas.
Regional gas suppliers in Sendai, Shizuoka and other cities will also build CNG stations. By the end of March 1998, the number of CNG stations is expectedto reach 62 nationwide, an increase of 15 stations from the same month in 1997. City gas suppliers will operate 46 of these stations.
