This station, which is operated by YPFB, offers a variety of fuels and now includes the supply of CNG. “The compressor delivers 1.200m3 per hour,” Rojas added. Drivers who want to be provided with natural gas must show the authorization sticker issued by the National Hydrocarbons Agency (ANH), which is handed out by the certified conversion centers after the vehicle is fitted.
All over this year, YPFB has been installing CNG stations throughout the country, in regions such as Sucre (whose inauguration was attended by the President of the Nation), Cochabamba and, recently, Oruro.
The new dispensing points are being added to the supply network together with the NGV conversion program implementation. The scheme aims to achieve 20,000 kits installed by the end of the year. Overall, 90 workshops are responsible for conducting the conversions, most of which are located in the departments of Santa Cruz, La Paz and Cochabamba.
