“Next July we will open the first and only CNG filling station in the city of Potosi and, additionally, the next week we will launch the call for bids on the first and only CNG filling station in Betanzos, a city located halfway between Sucre and Potosi,” YPFB reported.
The free conversion program for vehicles in Sucre is currently in progress and under the Ministry of Hydrocarbons and Energy administration. “It is necessary to have CNG selling points to protect the environment, generate savings and help needy people,” governor Urquizo added.
“Celebrating this May 25 (related to “the first libertarian scream” in Bolivia) we’re delivering two brand new CNG compression systems. YPFB made an investment as part of a national program designed to change energy grid. By means of YPFB, the national government achieves its commitment to gradually change the energy grid from liquid fuels into CNG. It also seeks to consolidate the idea that public and private transport should only use natural gas,” Villegas stated.
YPFB owns three NGV stations nationwide so far, and 12 additional points are expected to start business by August.
