Qatar to import Iranian CNG equipment

Qatar is interested in importing Iran-made equipment of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) to expand its CNG stations, an Iranian official says.

“Some neighboring countries such as Qatar are eager to use Iran’s expertise in CNG-powered public transportation vehicles and expansion of CNG stations,” Mohammad Rouyanian, who heads Iran’s Fuel and Transport Management Organization, was quoted by SHANA news agency as saying on Saturday.

Rouyanian predicted that Iran is to become an exporter of CNG kits and cylinders by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (ending March 20).

“Some CNG equipment is being exported to European countries,” he further explained.

Rouyanian went on to say that the number of CNG stations in Iran has increased significantly over the past few years.

He added that some 400 more CNG stations will be set up by the end of the year to reduce the consumption of gasoline in the country.

The sale of CNG-powered cars is also rising in Iran due to the low price of natural gas in the gas and oil-rich country.

The Iranian government hopes the switch to dual-fuel will provide relief for motorists affected by gasoline rationing, as there are no limits on the supply of CNG. Dual-fuel cars can run on CNG or gasoline.
