When natural disaster strikes, emergency relief is crucial. These disasters hit with little warning and often strain medical response capabilities, damage infrastructure, and cut off power to homes and businesses. A quick recovery demands the utmost performance from people and equipment.

Certarus’ CNG delivery for disaster relief uses a scalable and modular virtual pipeline. Having the largest CNG transportation trailer fleet in North America allows us to provide a reliable, unique, and flexible augmentation of the physical pipeline network that is necessary to support first responders, hospitals, and communities.

Gas is processed at one of our permanent or portable compressor source stations and made readily available, within hours to support our communities in their time of need. For more information regarding our emergency CNG fuel delivery, contact us today.

Advantages of CNG

Compressed natural gas, or CNG, is a fuel that can be used in place of gasoline, diesel fuel, and liquefied petroleum gas to power structures, equipment, and devices. CNG combustion produces fewer undesirable gases than those fuel sources. Additional benefits of CNG include:

  • Cost-effective
  • Better performance than petroleum-based fuels
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Lower maintenance costs

CNG also gives off little to no emissions while refueling, which is safe for the operator as well as the environment. In the event of a spill, it quickly dissipates instead of contaminating soil and water sources. This curbs fire or explosion risks commonly associated with other fuels.

CNG Applications

During times of crisis, electricity and fuel are not certainties. Our CNG virtual pipeline service assists in many ways:

  1. Pipeline outage support
  2. Supplement utility gas supply
  3. Support for critical infrastructure like hospitals, command centers, aid stations, and permanent/temporary housing
  4. Temporary and mobile power generation
  5. Mobile CNG power generation services for emergency CNG fuel delivery

The Certarus Advantage

Our disaster relief response program uses scalable and modular virtual pipelines to improve quality of life. Natural gas is processed at one of our permanent or portable compressor source stations and made available within hours. CNG is safely moved to impacted areas utilizing large-volume transport trailer systems. Advantages of this process include:

  • A safe, clean, and reliable fuel source during disaster relief
  • Higher BTU content than liquified natural gas or propane
  • Smaller footprint than LNG
  • Automated dispatch and scheduling
  • Reduced emissions
