Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El-Molla and Luxor Governor Mustafa Alham inaugurated on Saturday the first two integrated fuel stations, providing for the first time services to supply cars with natural gas in Luxor.
The new stations include two centers for converting regular cars to natural gas vehicles to meet demand and provide natural gas services to residents of Luxor and neighboring governorates.
El-Molla said that the project come within the framework of the Ministry of Petroleum’s plan to improve services provided to citizens at the level of the Republic, especially in Upper Egypt.
The minister emphasized that accelerating the pace of establishing natural gas fuel stations should serve the interest of a national project aimed at increasing the use of natural gas as an alternative fuel for vehicles.
He added that the two stations are part of the Petroleum Ministry’s plan to establish another 15 natural gas stations in Luxor.
