BP will purchase biomethane produced by Enagás’ subsidiary, Bioengas, as part of a wider collaboration between the two firms.
Enagás and BP have signed an agreement to promote emission reduction projects in Spain. The agreement will see the firms promote the development of projects in three key areas: the promotion of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) infrastructures in sustainable transport; the production and incentive of the consumption of renewable gases, and the promotion of entrepreneurship and innovation projects.
The agreement was signed electronically by Luis Aires, president of BP Oil Spain, and Marcelino Oreja, CEO of Enagás. Enagás, through its subsidiary, Scale Gas, will develop LNG and CNG points in the BP Service Station network, promoting the use of a low energy source in emissions as fuel in the automotive sector.
In addition to purchasing biomethane from Bioengas, BP will also collaborate with the company to create a national market for the sale and purchase of biomethane and identify new consumption opportunities. According to a statement by Enagás, BP’s strategic objective is to supply biomethane from its LNG and CNG stations, as well as exploring the potential of supplying the BP refinery in Castellon through biogas, biomethane, or hydrogen plants derived from biogas projects, in line with its eco-fuels strategy.
