European network of liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling stations continues to increase and has now more than 560 stations, according to NGVA Europe.

Data by the Brussels-based association shows that there are now 563 LNG and 4172 CNG fueling stations in Europe.

NGVA said earlier this year that the LNG fueling network had doubled its size in less than two years, reaching a new milestone of 500 LNG stations. There has been an increasing share of renewable gas in its fuel mix, or bio-LNG, as well.
