Today, PVGAZPROM NGV and KAMAZ have entered into a Cooperation Agreement at Saint Petersburg International Gas Forum 2021. Andrey Bogachev, General Director of PVGAZPROM NGV, and Rustam Shamsutdinov, Deputy General Director for Sales and Service of KAMAZ, have signed the document in the presence of Sergey Tumanov, Managing Director of Gazprom EP International.

The Agreement defines key arrangements for making a comprehensive proposal for the Vietnamese consumers concerning the conversion of vehicles to liquefied natural gas (LNG), and PVGAZPROM NGV renders its services for fueling up the vehicles and KAMAZ informs the consumers about the advantages of using LNG as NGV and best operating practices as well as supplies the vehicles and provides the maintenance services.

“We continue to actively participate in Vietnam's NGV market development and consider the motor vehicle segment as a crucial one in this project. There is no doubt that close cooperation with KAMAZ will give it a fresh impetus and contribute to the popularization of LNG as fuel for various types of vehicles in Vietnam”, said Sergey Tumanov.

“Vietnam is one of the key foreign markets for us and it is our ambition to expand the model range in the country by using vehicles running on natural gas. With the support of PVGAZPROM NGV we can make it faster and more efficient”, commented Rustam Shamsutdinov.
