Atlanta Gas Light to test adsorbed natural gas technology for light-duty trucks
Cobb Business Journal reported: Southern Company Gas subsidiary Atlanta Gas Light announced it will test adsorbed natural gas bi-fuel vehicles with the new integrated fuel storage technology developed by Adsorbed Natural Gas Products Inc. (ANGP). Adsorbed natural gas (ANG) technology uses activated carbon to reduce the storage pressure of natural gas without sacrificing the volume of natural gas stored through a process called adsorption. Using this type of fuel provides a cleaner and lower cost fuel option than gasoline or diesel for large, light-duty vehicles, such as SUVs, half-ton pickup trucks and service vans.
Global Oil and Gas Pipeline Market to Grow by USD 28.5 Billion during 2019-2023
AP News reported: Technavio’s latest market research report on the global oil and gas pipeline market predicts the market to witness a CAGR of close to 6% during the forecast period. This research report segments the market by type (gas and oil) and geography (Europe, South America, MEA, North America, and APAC). Safety has become the most critical factor in the oil and gas pipeline market over the past few decades. The development of advanced technologies to monitor oil and gas pipelines remotely has enabled operators to detecting potential problems in the entire pipeline. In addition, the use of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems further allows oil and gas companies to control, monitor, gather, and process realtime data. These advanced systems aid in the effective and efficient monitoring of the pipeline control valves at remote locations including the mountains. Furthermore, aerial observation has also started gaining importance in the safety inspection of oil and gas pipelines.
