Petronas NGV Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of state-owned Malaysian oil and gas company Petronas, is to open 10 more natural gas vehicle (NGV) refueling stations, planned for completion by 2014, reports Bernama. The company already operates 174 compressed natural gas (CNG) stations across the country.
The announcement was made by Petronas NGV CEO Akhbar M Thayoob at a Petronas NGV Safety Awareness Campaign event co-hosted by the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry (Ministry) at an NGV station in Berendam, Melaka on 28 September.
NGV numbers in Malaysia have reportedly grown to more than 50,000, growing at approximately 5% per annum. 90% of these are taxis.
