Moreover, a series of public fueling stations will be set up along highways 20 and 401 to strengthen and complement the existing private network. This public network may also eventually merge with the North American network, thereby enabling carriers to provide continent-wide coverage using NGVs. The first step will entail setting up public stations in Rivière-du-Loup, Lévis and Cornwall, which are expected to be operational by the end of 2013. Two mobile fueling stations have been ordered to accelerate the process. During the second phase, two additional public stations will be incorporated into the network: one east of Toronto and the other south of Montreal.
Given the projected rapid growth in market demand for LNG, specifically from the perspective of GMTS, Gaz Métro is currently looking into several solutions for improving the availability of the fuel in Quebec, including increasing liquefaction output, either by itself or via a subsidiary, directly through its liquefaction, storage and regasification (LSR) plant.
