LCNG refuelling systems: Forward distribution of regasified LCNG from liquid natural gas

The volume of liquefied natural gas (LNG) is only around 1/600th of the volume of gaseous natural gas. This results in significant advantages where gas transportation is concerned in particular. Following liquefaction and transportation, the liquefied natural gas (LNG) is regasified (converted into CNG) with subsequent forwarding to grid gas companies via pipelines.

Compressed natural gas CNG storage is more attractive for the following reasons:

  • Cryogenic temperatures (-164 °C to -161°C) and special container alloys are not required.
  • No boil-off losses.
  • A pump and a basic heat exchanger are all that are required to convert LNG into CNG.

LCNG storage refuelling systems thus strike a good balance between benefiting from the significant advantages of LNG where transportation is concerned and making the most of the specific advantages of CNG in terms of storage, distribution and consumption.

LCNG storage refuelling systems use LNG as a raw material for refuelling vehicles with compressed natural gas. They are CNG filling stations.

On the basis of our many years' experience of and expertise in high-pressure systems meeting the most exacting safety standard, BAUER has developed reliable and efficient LCNG storage refuelling systems which it has a successful track record in introducing to the market.

We would be delighted to advise you, even as early as the initial project phase, in the design and build of storage refuelling systems tailored to provide the very best solution for your specific individual needs.
