Each of these standard compressed natural gas (CNG) filling stations has four filling outlets, and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Targeted sales at each CNG filling station is 10,000 cubic meters (cbm) per day.

The designed maximum physical capacity of a standard CNG filling station is reported to be about 18,000cbm per day. Both new retail CNG filling stations are fully licensed by local governments to operate and sell CNG.

The company has now opened and is operating a total of 16 retail CNG filling stations in central and eastern China.

Bo Huang, CEO of Sinoenergy, said: We are pleased to have opened and begun operating two new stations in Xuancheng. By opening two new retail CNG stations in Xuancheng, we achieved our goal of having three retail CNG filling stations in Xuancheng by the end of calendar year 2008.
