Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR has commissioned compressed natural gas (CNG) filling stations for trucks in Turkey, the company said.

These gas filling stations are created at a distance of 200-250 km from each other, on roads connecting such cities as Istanbul, Ankara, Mersin, Bursa, Izmir with each other and with the surrounding areas.

Thus, a vehicle fleet of organizations engaged in such sectors as industry, tourism, construction, will get an alternative eco-friendly and economical type of fuel, the company said.
