Pipeline IntegrityUtility & Pipeline Applications
CNG for Pipeline Integrity Projects
Pipeline Integrity has taken on an entirely new meaning as the gas industry faces the dual challenges of maintaining and expanding existing operations to meet growing global energy demand while reducing cost and methane release. While the gas industry continues to see healthy demand and profits, construction costs are rising, and stricter environmental regulations are on the horizon as pressure to transition to renewable energy grows.
Local distribution companies (LDCs) and midstream companies are the critical link in the energy supply chain. Still, they face the conundrum of economically providing reliable throughput capacity with aging infrastructure and meeting emissions and safety targets. They face the need to increase energy security with new infrastructure construction but remain constrained by regulatory and permitting hurdles and extremely vocal environmental activists’ opposition.
Our mobile energy distribution service aids local gas utilities in maintaining pipeline integrity by providing an additional source of compressed natural gas (CNG) that can be injected into the pipeline during times of high demand, which is commonly referred to as pipeline peak shaving.
Our pipeline integrity support involves procuring gas, delivering it via our compressed tube trailers, and collaborating with utility teams on-site to ensure a smooth supply of gas during maintenance on upstream pipeline infrastructure.
To maintain an uninterrupted feed, we implement a rotating schedule of CNG trailers with capacity ranging from 50 to 540 MCF. Our regulator systems and equipped with heating capabilities, depressurize the gas and prevent it from freezing, enabling a constant pressure supply into the pipeline.
Furthermore, we oversee and manage pipeline remediation projects on-site, while adhering to stringent safety standards to ensure a secure working environment.
CNG Delivery has the capability to swiftly deploy its high-pressure trailers and decompression or equipment. We have a trained operator solution available 24/7 to supply gas to a utility during scheduled or unscheduled pipeline repairs until the pipeline’s full service is reinstated.
Pipeline Evacuation Services:
CNG Delivery has equipment and partnerships to rapidly deploy for pipeline evacuation / remediation projects. We can help to safely remove gas from pressurized pipelines without venting into the atmosphere and insert into high-pressure trailer or straight to the section of the pipeline it is needed.
Mobile Power Supply:
We supply mobile gas and natural gas fueled mobile generators to empower natural gas line compressor stations during facility improvement and maintenance projects. Gas powered generators ranging from 100kW to 1MW gas turbines are available for immediate power restoration.
CNG Peak Shaving
CNG Delivery provides CNG for power peak shaving, which enables utilities to anticipate demand peaks by compressing and storing gas during low-demand periods. This approach is reliable, cost-efficient, and can effectively support utilities during times of peak demand, be it a short or long-term event.
Furthermore, by utilizing CNG, utilities can improve reliability, address pressure concerns, and reduce the risk of interrupted service.
Many of the Local distribution companies and Utilities are facing mounting pressure from customers and regulators to expand capacity on existing lines to reach more customers. However, CNG Delivery offers an alternative solution where we supply CNG to critical flow points on existing pipelines during peak demand to boost capacity. This enables utilities to comply with Public Utility Commission capacity requirements without incurring the cost of upgrading all piped miles.
New Markets / Off Grid
Many utilities and LCD’s have new area that presents an attractive opportunity for service, but building a pipeline ahead of demand would yield a low return on capital. To address this, CNG Delivery can offer gas supply to help establish a local market, sometimes switch customers from Propane, and collaborate with the LDC to generate enough demand that would justify extending the pipeline.
In addition, CNG Delivery can help with providing electricity and heat in off-grid communities and remote areas that lack developed utilities where customer historically relied on diesel and propane due to the absence of pipeline infrastructure. We assist remote off-grid communities in transitioning to low carbon energy by offering clean and cost-effective compressed natural gas (CNG) that can be further distributed to residential and commercial users via a community-owned local distribution network.
