INDUSTRIAL COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS
COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS OF INDUSTRIAL

   The industrial compressed natural gas (iCNG) business involves direct natural gas distribution for industrial plants. The natural gas is compressed and delivered using vehicles, allowing clients to utilize the gas as if it were transported via the pipeline. The main clients include industrial plants located away from the pipelines, clients who require energy security, industrial plants waiting for pipeline installation and industrial plants with environmental concerns. The business started in Patum Thani in April 2015. In 2016, the industrial compressed natural gas business became more recognized by large-scale industrial plants, resulting in a continuous increase in the number of clients. In 2019, iCNG was the fastest-growing business. With the successful expansion, new clients and existing clients with capacity increase, iCNG has become more well-accepted in the industry.

   To the fact that Scan Inter Public Company Limited has been running business related to Natural gas which is not yet to date a widely used by manufacturers due to pipe rate coverage. As a matter of fact, natural gas pipe line only covers less than 10% from a total number of factories in Thailand. So as to, natural gas is publicly known by its environmental friendliness, safety and economical type of fuel. The company has deliberately invented a system that gives an ability to off-pipeline factories to react out to natural gas. Which, this group of producers is considered majority with a proportion of 92% of all manufacturers in Thailand. Originally, there was a high demand for natural gas by these producers but unfortunately it literally never happened since their sites were not located on natural gas route line. While the majority of them swapping to natural gas is absolutely seen as cost reduction. Including ongoing drawbacks from other fuel such as high level of emission from fuel oil and hazardous flame, moreover unpredictable price trend from Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).Because of all these problems, Scan Inter foreseen an opportunity to create a system that can help deliver natural gas to those who are out of reach from the pipeline through our trailers. On the other hand, “this trailer is acting as a virtual pipe-line that draws from our mother station to customer sites.”

   As said above, the outstanding quality of natural gas over other industrial fuels is its cleanliness after combustion when compared with coal, fuel oil, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), and Biomass. Moreover, natural gas is the lightest one in terms of weight which significant increases its safety index. When a leakage occurs natural gas will rapidly emanate into earth’s atmosphere, unlike Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) that has higher Specific Gravity than the air. As a consequent, when there’s a leakage in LPG it will stay on the ground level and remain in the surrounding area, which can potentially be a cause of hazardous flame.

   Natural gas holds its benefits in many aspects, one of the most important things is its price. Which saving of natural gas over fuel oil and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is significant and can vary from hundreds of thousands to millions of baht per month approximately ($10,000 - $50,000 at 32.5 Baht/$). This number helps make factories meet their break-even point for their investment from 10-14 months (Based on construction cost on Basic Gas processing Facility) especially when swapping from Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) fuel.

   Besides, when price stability comes into mind, price on natural gas seems to be the most stable in terms of price structure when compare with price of fuel oil that solely relies on West Texas Intermediate (WTI)also Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) that is dictated by Saudi Arabia contract price. The main factor that makes natural gas price more stable than the other is domestic production where 90%of natural gas in Thailand is domestically produced. In the near future, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and fuel oil can potentially flip over to an upward trend due to the rise in oil price. Due to the rise in oil price natural gas can also be seen as the best solution for industrial input when production cost is taken into account.
