First LNG station opens in VIC

Gas supplier Kleenheat Gas’ EVOL LNG and the Victorian Government this week opened the first Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) refuelling station in Wodonga, as part of a joint commitment to increasing LNG availability in regional Victoria.

The refuelling station at Caltex Wodonga, 300 kilometres northeast of Melbourne, is the first of five new stations planned for regional Victoria.

“We’re delighted to be working with the Victorian Government to provide a reliable network of LNG refuelling stations to support the growing use of LNG as a diesel-fuel alternative,” said Nick Rea, EVOL LNG Business Manager.

“Over time, the use of LNG as a transport fuel has become a more attractive option due to reduced particulate, CO2 and nitrogen oxide emissions compared with traditional transport fuels. LNG is also a lower cost fuel in comparison to diesel.”
