Liquefied Natural gas (LNG)

Our liquefied natural gas (LNG) provides a cleaner, less carbon-intensive fuel source and could strengthen energy security while reducing environmental impact.

Liquefied Natural gas

One of the key advantages of liquefied natural gas is its versatility. It can be used in various sectors, including power generation, transportation, and industrial applications. This flexibility allows South Africa to diversify its energy mix and reduce its reliance on traditional fossil fuels, such as coal.

Renergen will become the first commercial supplier of liquefied natural gas in South Africa. We will distribute LNG via modular mobile refuelling facilities, which we will locate on vacant land leased on established trucking routes.

Customers will realise meaningful cost savings and reduce their carbon tax by switching from diesel to liquefied natural gas. Renergen will sell its LNG product to domestic consumers, targeting primarily the South African transport industry, where it has established customer relationships.

Our liquefied natural gas is currently dedicated domestically to large industrial manufacturers and heavy logistics operators serving the transport industry. However, we intend to target any energy-intensive company as a customer through our lower price points and the reduced carbon emissions our product may offer.

The Properties of LNG

Composition

Methane
94%
Nitrogen
6%
Sulphur
0%

(unlike other natural gas sources, no other hydrocarbons are present)

LNG is simply natural gas that has been cooled down to -162°C and is in liquid form

LNG Applications

Industrial thermal / heating

LNG offers several advantages over other fuels like LPG and diesel for industrial heating, such as:

Line-haul Transport

LNG offers several advantages over diesel for heavy-duty vehicles such as:

There are two methods of introducing natural gas into diesel engines; 
Diesel Duel Fuel (DDF) and a dedicated natural gas truck.

Gas to Power

LNG offers several advantages for gas-to-power applications compared to other fuels, such as:
