Abu Dhabi Embarks On CNG Scheme For Taxis

The first phase of a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) project for 48 of Abu Dhabis taxis is to begin by the end of February, a spokesman for ADNOC-Distribution announced on 8 January. The program will cost $1.5mn to implement and the selected taxis will be able to refuel at that Al-Maha CNG station on Al-Mina Street in Abu Dhabi late next month, the spokesman said.
