Gas Natural Fenosa operates in the following departments (administrative regions of Colombia): Bogota, Boyacá, Cundinamarca and Santander. The overall number of conversions to CNG in these regions in 2014 was 20310, which means a year prior, in 2013, 19160 vehicles were adapted to run on methane. Vast majority of the conversions were done in the cities of Bogota, Chia, Zipaquirá and Ubaté. Another 1220 CNG systems were fitted in Bucaramanga and Barrancabermeja, with 247 more in Chiquinquirá, Duitama, Sogamoso and Tunja. Over 32% of all converted vehicles were taxis, while further 26% were delivery cars.
