MGL CROSSES

200 CNG STATION MARK IN MMR

 

 

Mahanagar Gas Limited one of the major City Gas Distribution company has crossed the 200th CNG station mark in Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The company commissioned its 200th CNG filling station in Badlapur recently. With the commissioning of M/s. Patil Petroleum CNG Station in Badlapur, MGL has augmented its CNG infrastructure in Kalyan-Dombivili-Ambernath-Badlapur (KDAB) region.

 

In the MMR, MGL caters to over 5 lakh vehicles plying on CNG through its network of 200 + CNG stations with over 1100 dispensing points and a compression capacity of over  28 lakh kgs of CNG per day.  The 200th station aims at deeper penetration of CNG in the KDAB region.

 

Commenting on the milestone, Managing Director of MGL, Mr. Rajeev Mathur said, “Mahanagar Gas has been meeting the demand for CNG efficiently and judiciously. Ease of access and accessibility of CNG stations across our operational areas is the driving force of our CNG network and with the 200th CNG station, MGL continues to fulfill its promise of providing safe, efficient and reliable energy. This is a step towards facilitating the increasing number of customers in the MMR”.

 

The average distance between CNG stations across MMR is 1.52 kms in Western suburbs, 1.47 kms in Central suburbs, 3.2 kms in Navi Mumbai and 4.5 kms in Kalyan, Dombivali, Ambernath and Badlapur (KDAB).

 

“To enhance the CNG infrastructure in KDAB region we appeal to the local people with appropriate land to come forward and offer them for setting up CNG stations. Lack of space within the city areas is a big hurdle in expanding the CNG network. People willing to offer land for setting up CNG stations will be a major boost for spreading the network of this eco-friendly fuel” Mr. Mathur added.

 

 

Besides Badlapur, MGL is also spreading its network in the uncovered areas of Kalyan, Dombivali, Ambernath, Ulhasnagar, Bhiwandi Panvel, Taloja and Kharghar. To cater to the growing Natural Gas demand of existing and expansion areas, MGL sources gas from various existing suppliers through its four City Gate Stations in MMR.

 

 

“The metropolitan population is fast realizing the importance of converting their vehicles to CNG. The resulting demand is overwhelming which is encouraging and challenging at the same time. There’s no doubt that CNG is the fuel of the future and if we have to preserve our environment, we need less polluting fuels like CNG and PNG that also cost less. We continue to bring the uncovered population into the CNG fold,” added Mr. Mathur.
