Ham, Lipigas Open Peru's First LNG Station
Spanish LNG services provider HAM Group and Chilean gas supplier Lipigas have opened Peru's first natural gas filling station to offer LNG as a vehicle fuel, HAM said on January 14.
The Biocom station was put into operation on December 29 and is also the first to offer compressed natural gas (CNG) in Peru's Cuzco region. It is located on Avenida la Cultura, one of the main avenues in Cuzco that sees significant traffic. The partners plan to add a second gas filling station in Cuzco and another in Quillabamba this year.
HAM controls 30 LNG and CNG stations in Spain, 15 in Italy, 12 in Holland, nine in Belgium and eight in France. The company announced in October last year it had been picked by Lipigas to design, construct and commission Chile's first LNG filling station.
