It is worth recalling that Gazprom is investing in the expansion of Belarusian NGV market through its subsidiary Beltransgaz. As it does in Russia, Gazprom plans to implement a program aimed at increasing CNG sales, building facilities to manufacture natural gas-powered vehicles and expanding the fueling network.
