With high oil prices, transporting gas by road to customers not connected to the gas grid is becoming attractive. CNG Services is working on a number of projects using CNG and LNG as a way to give customers the benefit of natural gas. Using CNG or LNG in this way is known as a 'virtual pipeline'.
A trailer filled with CNG can transport around 5 tonnes of gas, an LNG tanker around 21 tonnes.
CNG Services provides a number of services in relation to virtual pipelines:
- Feasibility studies
- Design of compression plant
- Specification of all plant (including CNG trailers) and management of tender process
- Financial and regulatory advice
- Project management through to commissioning and operations
