Synthetic Natural Gas
Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) is a blend of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and diluent. The possible diluents are Bio gas, Digester Gas, Landfill Gas, Nitrogen and Compressed Air. However the commonly used diluent is compressed Air. Thus produced SNG provides direct replacement for Natural Gas.
The ratio of LPG to diluent (air) will depend on the Wobbe Index of the fuel to be replaced (Natural Gas). Matching the Wobbe Index ensures the two different fuels behave exactly as same fuels and fuel swapping becomes seamless.
Wobbe Index is calculated by dividing CV with under root of specific gravity;
Two different gases with identical Wobbe Index will produce equal amount of heat with the same amount of combustion air from the same burner. Matching Wobbe Index of two fuels ensures that they will behave exactly as same fuels and the changeover will be seamless with no change required in either pipelines or combustion equipment.
SNG systems can be virtually designed to meet any energy demand due to its modular nature. It also can be designed to give tailor-made solution to suit specific process requirement. Because of its modular construction and plug and play technology, it can work smoothly in extreme climatic conditions.
Why use SNG?
Natural Gas is a vital component of the world's supply of energy. It is one of the cleanest, safest, and cheapest energy sources widely used in residential, commercial, and industrial applications.Over a period, due to increase in uses of Natural Gas , there is a mismatch in demand and supply leading to scarcity of Natural Gas.
SNG is desirable when there is an absence or a shortage of Natural Gas in a region. SNG can be used to precede the availability Natural Gas or to augment the gas supply where Natural Gas is already available.
SNG systems provide a convenient, consistent,high quality fuel with combustion characteristics similar to Natural Gas. In emerging economies where Natural Gas is in its infancy, SNG plants allow local gas utility firms to “build up” a customer base during planning and construction of a Natural Gas transmission line. The availability of SNG also entices commercial and industrial growth since such customers can install Natural Gas equipment before arrival of Natural Gas.
SNG will be ideal for the customer facing following situations.
- Inadequate Natural Gas supply available to meet energy hungry industry
- Production needs to start up but Natural Gas supply is delayed
- Natural Gas is not available in the region currently but system needs to be designed for Natural Gas to derive future benefits
- Natural Gas pricing opportunities
- Peak shaving allows enhanced production
- Standby system in case of grid supply failure
