This initiative is part of European project of Blue Corridors, for long haul transport of commodities on LNG. There are three Portuguese companies participating in Blue Corridors project: Galp Energia, Goldenergy and Cloud Energy.
Currently, there are only one LNG refueling station operating in the country, which is located in Mirandela Municipality (northern region) and a project to install another one at Cartaxo municipality (about 100 km from Lisbon). Therefore, in the near future, Portugal will be equipped with a total of at least four LNG filling stations to supply vehicles.
Portugal has a maritime terminal for LNG reception at Sines harbor and access to several Spanish ports with capacity to receive the clean fuel.
