Refuelling infrastructure was also strengthened in 2010 and CNG users can already undertake long journeys in most of the country, said Santiago Mejía, Gazel’s brand manager. He explained that the country’s west and the north coast have a supplying network. Besides, “proven, probable and possible reserves” allowed Gazel to invest in more stations and also plan the building of 20 more this year.
Furthermore, Gómez said that one challenge for 2011 is to introduce NGV fleets in urban passenger transportation. “This would represent million of savings for the nation and would also have crucial impacts on air quality in Colombian major cities,” he said.
