South Korea’s state-owned Kogas recently announced it is in final talks with Uzbekistan’s state-run UNG to build compressed natural gas fuelling stations in the Central Asian country. The works would start by the second half of 2011.
Kogas is also planning to build plants for CNG auto-containers in Uzbekistan, after forming a consortium with four South Korean auto container makers (Kolon Corp., NK Co., Engine Tech Co. and KwangShin Machine Ind. Co.).
Furthermore, the number of Uzbekistan’s NGVs is expected to rise up to 550,000 units in the near future from the current 120,000 units, according to Kogas’ estimations.
