India announces standards for LNG stations and vehicles

August 25, 2017. India appears to be trotting along towards becoming the latest country to run long-distance trucks and buses on liquefied natural gas (LNG) with an eye on reducing air pollution from vehicular emission.

   After approving the green fuel for automotive use, the government has now notified changes in the gas cylinder norms to pave the way for LNG refueling stations and help start commercial service by LNG vehicles.

   The Commerce and Industry Ministry has notified the amendments to rules governing use of cylinders carrying gas under pressure. This will help establish storage and supply chain for LNG stations through ‘daughter trucks’, just like for CNG stations in cities.

   “The use of LNG as transport fuel features in the priority list of the government. Proposed amendments will help in setting up the required infrastructure,” Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan tweeted after receiving a letter from Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.
