US Natural Gas Events

We could go on and on about all the events that are hosted around the world every year, but I’ve narrowed it down to events during the summer, only in the United States.  If you know of any that I’ve missed, shoot me an email at samanthawoody@air-components.com and I will add it to the list.

Costs of building a CNG station

There are a few factors to consider – what kind of vehicles will be fueling there and what type of station are you wanting to build?

Some CNG fueling stations may be dedicated to serving one type of vehicle, like cars versus trucks, or have separate facilities.  It helps the CNG fueling station to offer a specialized service and adhere to the standards for supplying CNG safely to certain types of vehicles.

The design of the CNG fueling station is made considering the estimated number of vehicles it may serve in a day. This is done after considering the local population and the flow of traffic through that area. The number of vehicles served also helps the CNG fueling station in arriving at an estimated volume of CNG that it will receive from the gas supplier.

A certain station may not serve all consumers.  There are CNG fueling stations that serve the general public while there are also CNG fueling stations that are dedicated for a specific business or fleet of vehicles.

In addition to providing CNG fueling facilities, a CNG fueling station also provides other services such as housing a convenience store or a service station, where you can get an oil change.

Record Setting Natural Gas Withdrawals

“The EIA said draws from underground gas storage facilities were 287 Bcf (8.1 x 109 m3), “The most during the 20 years for which data exist and the latest in a season already characterized by withdrawals much larger than average.”

The EIA also said he cold weather impacted production. Wellhead freeze-offs occurred in parts of the Marcellus Shale in northeastern Pennsylvania and in the Fayetteville Shale in Arkansas. U.S. dry gas output dropped to 61.9 Bcf (1.7 x 109 m3) on Jan. 8, the lowest since September 2012, but rebounded to nearly 66 Bcf (1.8 x 109 m3) by Jan. 16.”
