Indian oil and gas company Essar Oil, part of the Essar Group, and state-run Gujarat State Petroleum Corp. (GSPC) have commissioned a compressed natural gas (CNG) facility at Essar Oil’s retail outlet at Botad, near Rajkot. This is Essar’s 20th CNG outlet in the state.
Essar Oil currently operates about 225 retail outlets in Gujarat. The company has been aggressively adding multi-fuel options at its outlets to provide more choice for its customers, with its CNG presence stretching across Ahmedabad, Baroda, Rajkot and Surat. By the end of the current year, Essar will have another 30 such facilities across the country.
GSPC supplies natural gas through 137 CNG stations across Gujarat, catering to more than 75,000 vehicles per day.
