9 percent NGV number rise in Argentina

Ente Nacional Regulador del Gas (ENARGAS), Argentina's natural gas market regulatory body, has released data concerning the number of NGVs registered in the country as of the end of 2014. Apparently, there's been a significant rise in the figure.

According to ENARGAS' data, the number of CNG-powered vehicles in Argentina in 2014 was almost 1,7 million, or 1 695 243 to be exact. This means that there was improvement over the previous year figure of almost 9% as in 2013 there were 1 559 343 NGVs in this South American country.

NGVs are most numerous in the Buenos Aires and Córdoba provinces – 60% of all Argentinian cars running on compressed natural gas are used in these two regions. However, the Buenos Aires province, along with Rio Negro, saw no rise of NGV number rise in 2014. All other provinces of the country did.

The biggest hike in petrol-to-CNG conversion numbers occurred in the Formosa province – by 583% more in 2014 than in 2013. The rates were less spectacular, yet remarkable in other regions: 21% in Misiones, 10% in Corrientes, 22% in Santa Cruz, 16% in Santiago del Estero, 12% in Córdoba, 14% in Chaco, 19% in Neuquén and, last but not least, 11% in Jujuy. Let's hope the figures will be at least as good for 2015, but we'll have to wait and see.
