Chongqing Fujiang Energy Technology Company (Fujiang Energy), a subsidiary of Fortune Oil, is going to start the operation of the first LNG filling station on the Yangtze River in August this year.
The LNG filling station has a storage volume of 2,000 cu m and is capable of filling 20 vessels every day.
Fujiang Energy converted its first LNG/diesel duel fuel vessel last year and this year and the company plans to expand its business of LNG vessel conversion and LNG filling.
