Over 650 LNG stations for road transport in Europe

The Natural & bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA Europe) has identified 664 LNG stations in Europe and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries.

As of April 2023, the Natural & bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA Europe) has listed 664 LNG stations in Europe and EFTA countries. [1] The size of the fuelling network intended for road transport appears to be steadily growing. There were 500 LNG stations in February 2022.


The countries with the largest number of stations are Germany with 165, Italy with 138, Spain with 93, and France with 75 LNG stations.[1]

According to the European Environment Agency (EEA), road transport constitutes the highest proportion of overall transport emissions. In 2020, it emitted 77% of all EU transport-related GHGs. [2] The use of alternative fuels is a short-term option to reduce emissions in road transport. [3]



Did you know? The 20th International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG2023) is coming to Vancouver, BC, Canada, from 10-13 July 2023. Hosted by the Canadian Gas Association (CGA), LNG2023 will explore the theme of Fuelling a Secure Energy Future and will cover a range of topics relevant and important to the LNG industry.
