Compressed or liquefied natural gas

More than 11 million vehicles around the world use natural gas.
There are some 110,000 such vehicles in the United States and about 12,000 in Canada. Two different forms of natural gas for vehicles are used: compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas.


Compressed natural gas (CNG)

Compressed natural gas is the perfect fuel for heavy vehicle fleets that operate regionally. The fuelling station is directly linked to Gaz Métro's underground distribution system and can be installed on the grounds of your facility.


Liquefied natural gas (LNG)

Liquefied natural gas is used for heavy transport trucks that need a high horsepower
engine and a longer range. The fuelling station is supplied by tankers from Gaz Métro Transport Solutions.

Proven technologies

In both cases, these engines have been proven; that is why many natural gas vehicles are available in North America and why manufacturers issue extended warranties, in particular for the heavy truck, tool truck and bus markets.
