GAZPROM Germania acquires natural gas fillling stations in Hesse

Berlin, 12 October 2015: GAZPROM Germania GmbH is expanding its network of natural gas filling stations. GAZPROM Germania and Hesse-based utility ENTEGA AG today signed an agreement that will see GAZPROM Germania retroactively acquire four natural gas filling stations in the Darmstadt area effective 1 August 2015.


“The current discourse around diesel shows that we need a broader mix of alternative fuels. That’s why we’ve acquired natural gas filling stations in the Rhine-Main area for the first time. We see great potential in natural gas for eco-friendly mobility”, says Timo Vehrs, Director of Business Development at GAZPROM Germania.


The four natural gas filling stations are located at Frankfurter Str. 121 in Darmstadt, Mehlsee 5 in Büttelborn, Werner-von-Siemens-Str. 1 in Pfungstadt, and Robert-Koch-Str. 1 in Weiterstadt. The acquisition brings the number of stations GAZPROM Germania operates in Germany to 34.


Natural gas vehicles are among Germany’s most popular alternative-drive vehicles, with around 100,000 registered. GAZPROM Germania is continuing to invest in Germany’s network of natural gas filling stations and plans to be operating at least 44 natural gas filling stations by the end of 2016. GAZPROM Germania is also collaborating with its subsidiary VEMEX on additional filling stations in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
