Natural gas is used as a fuel both in gaseous form (CNG, “Compressed Natural Gas”) and in liquid form (LNG, “Liquified Natural Gas”). There are already over 150 LNG filling stations in Europe. After a long period of stagnation in Germany, 12 LNG filling stations have been put into operation at important traffic hubs over the past two years. The number of LNG filling stations is expected to rise to over 50 in the course of 2020. Germany, as the most important transit country in the EU, will thus close a gap in the European LNG infrastructure.
