KUALA LUMPUR: Petronas Dagangan Bhd (PetDag) is not planning to stop its natural gas for vehicles (NGV) service to customers.

Managing director and CEO Azrul Osman Rani said its stations remained operational to provide NGV to taxis.

“The demand is there, and we are still servicing NGV to our customers,” he told reporters after the Setel Nationwide launch today.

In August last year, it was reported that the company would review its NGV business and discuss with the government on what would be the next form of alternative energy for vehicles.

PetDag was quoted as saying that a demand reduction of between 15% and 20% yearly led the company to relook the business.

Meanwhile, Azrul said PetDag planned to increase its revenue contribution from Setel, Malaysia’s first mobile app for fuel payment.

He said the company aimed to offer Setel at more than 1,000 Petronas stations by the second quarter of this year. – Bernama
