What is Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) ?
CNG is a Fossil Fuel comprised of 87 to 92 percent of methane and is one of the cleanest burning fuel. A natural gas that has been compressed at 200 to 250 bar pressure, which remains clear and non-corrosive. It’s an alternate fuel to Diesel, petrol and Black oil. Against diesel, CNG is 45 to 50 % cheaper (depending on customer’s location). CNG on wheels act as a virtual pipeline for the consumers.
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) from Green Fuels Limited
GLNG supplies CNG through its sister company Green Fuels Limited (GFL). GFLis one of the leading Gas compression facility in Nigeria with approx. 10.5 MMSCFD compression & distribution facility. Served from two strategically located Compression Stations in Ota & Abeokuta with ongoing expansion, this capacity will reach to 15.7 MMSCFD. Two Different Sources (Shell Nigeria Gas & Nigerian Gas Marketing Company) are utlized for Feed stock Gas which will guarantee Gas Supply365 days/year.
Green Fuels Limited (GFL)offers:
✓ A mobile gas distribution solution that meets international safety standards
✓ An economically viable proposition for Industrial customers
✓ A platform for market testing and development
GFL makes natural gas available to industrial consumers in remote (off-pipeline) locations through our Gas on Wheels technology solutions (virtual pipelines). In this process, we take natural gas from the pipeline at our compression station and compress to pressures of 200 – 250 bars. This Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is then loaded into our specially built and trailer mounted CNG storage and transportation vessels of various capacities (6000 SCM to 8300 SCM), which are transportable by road.
CNG is then decompressed at the consumer’s CNG receiving station, which consists of the pressure reducing equipment, metering, high- & low-pressure gas pipe networks, and the necessary safety structures such as blast protection walls. Once reduced to the appropriate level (dependent on the gas-consuming equipment), the gas flows directly into the equipment, including power generation and process heat equipment such as ovens or boilers. As in the model of pipeline suppliers, GFL charges a single tariff per Standard Cubic Meter (SCM) of CNG delivered. Our Gas on Wheels equipment are all designed, built, and rigorously tested to the highest quality standards with emphasis on safety.
