Khoury said that first phase, between 2010 and 2014, would include constructing 2 CNG main stations connected to a natural gas pipeline along with 4 to 5 CNG sub stations.

The CEO said that the next phase is estimated to cost USD100 million and would include improving the infrastructure of 6 stations linking 2 pipelines and 19 CNG on line stations.
