Apart from direct savings in switching over to Natural Gas, there are other benefits associated with the clean fuel
Benefits of PNG as Commercial Fuel
PNG can be used for a number of applications like Heating, Power Generation, Cooking, Air-conditioning etc.
AGL offers the convenience of continuous and adequate supply of PNG at all times through well laid infrastructure of pipelines.
PNG being lighter than air is safer.
PNG is a clean/environment friendly fuel. It does not leave any unpleasant soot, ash or odour.
No spillage and pilferage
In case of fuels like HSD and LDO, there are considerable chances of spillage and pilferage. In case of PNG these losses are invariably done away with, as PNG is supplied through pipes.
No Adulteration possible
Which is otherwise a common problem with other liquid fuels.
High Combustion Efficiency
Due to high Combustion efficiency natural gas is very well utilized in the combustion process.
Billing - No up-front payment
The daily bills, settlements and reconciliation are also avoided as the consumer is billed after usage
No Storage Required
PNG does not require any storage tank or storage space since it is supplied to you through pipelines.
Better Inventory Management
The manpower and time that was earlier being used for ensuring minimum stock levels of LPG, HSD and LDO, can be used elsewhere.
No daily liaisoning
The consumer is spared the task of Liaisoning with oil companies and co-ordinating with them for ensuring the daily supply of fuel, because PNG is supplied directly through pipes.
No preheating required
In case of PNG, no preheating is required which leads to considerable savings on auxiliary power cost.
Lower maintenance cost
With PNG, soot or ash accumulation and greasy spillages are absent from the appliances. Maintenance costs are thus, driven down.
