Green Fuels Limited (GFL) is in the business of supplying natural gas to Industries located in areas where piped natural gas is not available. GFL compresses the natural gas (CNG) and transports it using high pressure specially designed tube trailers. The company has two business divisions.The company is setting up both self owned and franchise.
Green Fuels is set up in collaboration with Clean Energy Development Corporation CEDC. The operation is designed to exceed world class standard of safety.GFL system is in line with Nigeria Government’s initiative to utilize Nigeria’s vast gas resources and to reduce environmental pollution
CNG refuelling station, spread across various cities and towns of the country will provide CNG for automotive use. These CNG stations are in the process of being built.
CNG is Compressed Natural Gas, produced by compressing standard natural gas to a fraction of its volume, usually at a pressure of around 200 barg.
As a fuel, natural gas is significantly more cost effective than conventional fuels such as petrol and diesel. It is also considerably safer, even in the case of leakage, and tremendously more environmentally friendly. Boasting a 70-90% reduction in Carbon Monoxide content, natural gas can and will contribute significantly towards the reduction of emissions, particularly in regions where it exists in abundance as is the case with Nigeria.
CNG is a highly desirable fuel in industrial applications including power generation and process heating. On top of the economic and environmental benefits, CNG provides a reduction in general operating wear and tear; examples of this include a lack of contamination or dilution of crank case oil and the elimination of the fouling of spark plugs.
CNG offers a fuel that is cheaper and more environmentally friendly than petrol and diesel, and as such is an ideal fuel to drive growth while promoting environmental responsibility and sustainability in today’s world.
CNG Dispensing Machine will dispense CNG into the vehiclesGFL makes natural gas available to industrial consumers in remote (off-pipeline) locations through our Gas on Wheels technology solutions. In this process, we take natural gas from the pipeline at our compression station and compress to pressures of 200 – 250 barg. This Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is then loaded into our specially built and trailer mounted CNG storage and transportation vessels of various capacities, which are transportable by road.
CNG is then decompressed at the consumer’s CNG receiving station, which consists of the pressure reducing equipment, metering, high and low pressure gas pipe networks, and the necessary safety structures such as blast protection walls. Once reduced to the appropriate level (dependent on the gas-consuming equipment), the gas flows directly into the equipment, including power generation and process heat equipment such as ovens or boilers.
As in the model of pipeline suppliers, GFL charges a single tariff per standard cubic meter of CNG delivered. Our Gas on Wheels equipment is all designed, built, and rigorously tested to the highest quality standards with an emphasis on safety.
Conversion Kits will be used to enable vehicles run on CNG. The vehicle has to be converted by incorporating a minor conversion mechanism so that the Vehicle can run with both CNG and petrol/diesel.
CNG cylinders as CNG storage in the vehicles has also to be procured and attached.Also, a number of well equipped conversion workshops are required at all places to speed up conversion and attend to a service requirementHigh pressure oil-free compressors are required to compress CNG. Compression stations are built , having a series of specially- built compressors.Tube Trailers & Tractors are required for transporting CNG at high pressure .
