Advantages of a CNG Virtual Pipeline

Certarus offers low carbon energy solutions through a CNG virtual pipeline, reducing costs and burning cleaner than other fuels. We specialize in the creation of a CNG virtual pipeline by compressing, transporting, and integrating compressed natural gas for industries like mining, forestry, and more.

By utilizing our network of regional CNG compression stations coupled with our fleet of trailers, we provide a fuel source that surpasses the reach of conventional pipelines. This allows us to provide CNG to isolated regions or areas where pipelines have not yet been constructed or are not feasible.

In addition to these, other CNG virtual pipeline advantages include:

  • Consistency
  • Reliability: through reduced touches within the supply chain and redundant supply points
  • Mobility
  • Scalability
  • Reduced Operating Costs
  • Continuous and Monitored Supply: with 24/7 remote monitoring from Certarus

Advantages of CNG

There are a number of different advantages of compressed natural gas. In addition to being an abundant fuel source, CNG offers the following benefits:

  • Cost Savings: CNG is a cheaper alternative to fuel sources like liquid natural gas (LNG) and propane
  • Eco-Friendly: CNG is the cleanest transportation fuel on the market with 90% less particulate emissions than diesel; offers the ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the fuel lifecycle
  • Efficient
  • Price Stable: CNG offers a stable and predictable fuel price
  • Safer: CNG is safer than other fuel sources like LNG and diesel
    • If there is a leak, fuels like LNG and Diesel remain on the ground before evaporating; CNG evaporates immediately

What Types of Fuel can CNG Displace?

As mentioned above, there are a number of different benefits to utilizing compressed natural gas over other fuel sources. Some examples of fuels that CNG can replace include:

  • Propane: CNG offers lower operating costs and lower initial CAPEX requirements than propane
  • Liquid Natural Gas (LNG)
  • Diesel
  • Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

With 30-50% savings over other liquid fuels, there’s no question compressed natural gas is the fuel source for you.

Industries & Applications

Compressed natural gas can be used in a number of different industries for various applications. Some of these include:
