Gas Natural announced last week that mains gas will arrive in Marbella, Estepona and Cártama this year. Marbella is the only town in Spain with a population of more than 100,000 which does not yet have mains gas. Gas Natural supplies 54 municipalities in Malaga province via pipeline and has also established a natural liquid gas plant in Vélez-Málaga. Towns to be connected to the network in the future include Torrox, Manilva, Casares and Coín, and the government has authorised a connection as far as Nerja.
