fuel is suitable for the vehicle.

Rosneft and Beijing Gas to build fuel
infrastructure network in Russia
Scandinavia to get network of 50 LNG stations
Gasum is investing in the construction of around
50 gas filling stations for heavy-duty vehicles in
Finland, Sweden and Norway.
The stations, which are expected to be operational
by the beginning of the 2020’s, will multiply the
size of the Nordic heavy-duty vehicle gas refuelling
network, enabling considerable emission cuts.
In the Nordic countries, heavy-duty road
transport plays a key role in the logistics system
while at the same time generating a significant
proportion of road transport emissions.
For the emission reduction targets set at the
national and international levels to be reached,
concrete solutions are needed to reduce heavy-duty
road transport emissions.
The new stations will be located at key transport
nodes and will enable significant increases in
the use of LNG and biogas in heavy-duty transport.
“We’re on our way towards a carbon-neutral
society and it’s now time to accelerate the pace.
Gas plays an indisputably important role in this
transition,” Gasum CEO Johanna Lamminen
summed up. “In recent years, we’ve been making
purposeful efforts to build the Nordic LNG and
biogas infrastructure to improve access to gas.
“In early 2018, the Swedish Environmental
Protection Agency granted Gasum an investment
subsidy for the expansion of our filling station
network as part of the Climate Leap (Klimatklivet)
program. This is key proof of the enormous potential
of the gas market and enables the establishment
of the role of gas as a low-emission fuel for
heavy-duty road transport.”
The demand for cleaner transport solutions is
increasing rapidly as solutions are sought to combat
climate change. Delivery and heavy-duty road
vehicles are currently responsible for more than a
quarter of road transport emissions in the EU.
Lidl to install Ireland’s largest network of
supermarket-based EV chargers
Budget supermarket chain Lidl has announced
that it will install electric vehicle (EV) chargers at
20 of its stores across Ireland over the next six
months, in a bid to host the nation’s largest supermarket
based network of chargepoints.
The company is investing more than £133m
(€150m) in the infrastructure project, which will
see at least 40 EV chargepoints installed by
February 2019, following successful trials of the
technology in a number of its stores.
The chargers will be retrofitted at 10 Lidl stores
and incorporated into the design of seven stores
currently in development. The chargepoints will be
free for customer use and will provide an average
100km of driving range per charge.
Lidl Ireland’s director of property and central
services, Alan Barry, said: “With more and more
customers shopping with us every week, we hope
that the expansion of the network of public charge
points will make electric vehicles more attractive
to customers whilst further enhancing our customer
The move to expand Lidl’s EV charging network
comes after Ireland updated its national
climate-mitigation plans to include a target of
increasing the number of EVs on Irish roads to
500,000 by 2030.
Government figures have revealed that
transport accounts for a third of the nation’s
CO2 emissions and energy requirements. Lidl’s
announcement was praised by the Sustainable
Energy Authority Ireland’s CEO, Jim Gannon, who
said the supermarket would provide a “welcome”
addition to Ireland’s EV charging infrastructure.
“While we recognise that the majority of charging
may take place at home, initiatives such as
this from Lidl will help to provide confidence in the
charging network and ensure that there are sufficient
charging locations available for a growing
number of electric vehicle users,” Gannon said.
Oil major Rosneft and Chinese Beijing Gas have
agreed, this month, on the main conditions of creating
a joint enterprise to build 160 gas stations in
Russia, Rosneft said in a statement.
Beijing Gas Group Company Limited is part of
the Beijing Enterprises Group Limited, which is
one of the leading companies in the natural gas
sector, gas infrastructure construction and energy
production in Beijing region.
Last year, Russian oil giant Rosneft has closed
the sale of a 20-percent stake in Verkhnechonskneftegaz
(VCNG) to China’s Beijing Gas Group
Company Limited for $1.1 billion.
Moreover, Rosneft and Beijing Gas are reportedly
considering options for developing integrated
cooperation in Eastern Siberia and the Far East,
involving exploration of hydrocarbons, development
of fields, production and sale of gas.
