“One of the UAE’s key pillars to drive sustainable growth and achieve our Vision 2021 to be among the best nations in the world is to encourage energy use efficiency. EMGAS initiative is path-breaking and will contribute to a greener nation. We evaluated the parameters outlined by EMGAS in their CNG commercial distribution, and they uphold the highest standards across all aspects of operation,” said Mohammed Saleh Badri, Acting General Director of ESMA.
Zaid Alqufaidi, ENOC Marketing Managing Director, added: “With the UAE placing increasing focus on promoting alternative sources of energy, CNG has a key role to play in supporting the country’s green vision, for the automotive sector. The announcement by ESMA will encourage more customers to adopt CNG as their choice of cleaner and greener fuel, thus strengthening the UAE’s focus on conserving our resources and protecting the environment for future generations.”
EMGAS, as part of its NGV initiative in Dubai, commenced commercial operations of CNG refueling in November 2013. Currently it has a mother station located close to its facilities in Jebel Ali, from where dedicated tankers receive and distribute the gaseous fuel to its customers including DP World, Dubai Police and Dubai Airports. The company also owns and operates a mobile filling unit, which tours customer premises to distribute natural gas as per their requirement.
