Shell meets growing LNG demand with 30th fuelling station in Germany


A unit of energy giant Shell has opened the 30th liquefied natural gas (LNG) refuelling station in Germany, helping to meet the ever-increasing demand for LNG in the country.

Capable of supplying up to 200 LNG-powered trucks per day, the station – based in Barbin, Bavaria – will strengthen supply of the fuel in the region.
