Finland’s Gasum Sees Good Prospects for Gas-Fuelled Cars
Amid difficulties for European upstream companies, Gasum stressed that natural gas could play a significant role in the transportation sector.
Decreasing its price of natural gas and biogas in its filling stations, the Finnish company tried to give new impetus to gas, stressing it is compatible with climate targets.
‘As well as being affordable, natural gas and biogas are also excellent road fuel choices from an environmental perspective. Carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles running on natural gas are around 25% and on biogas up to 90% lower than those from petrol-fuelled vehicles’ Gasum wrote on Thursday.
The company, which already bet on the opportunities of gas in the maritime transportation, is clearly endorsing an increase in gas-fuelled car.
‘Despite the changing market situation, natural gas remains the least expensive road transport fuel, and the 100% Finnish biogas is the cheapest renewable vehicle fuel.’
Gasum is owned by the Finnish state (75%) and Gazprom (25%).
