The Definitive Guide for LNG in Fleets
CHANGING FROM DIESEL IS SIMPLE
When providing fuel to long-haul transportation fleets, it is critical that the fuel is reliable, of good quality, and sold at an affordable price. With two liquefaction plants operating 24/7/365 to produce liquefied natural gas that is consistently cheaper than diesel, Kinetrex is positioned to dependably meet these criteria.

LNG is approx. 95% Methane. Pipeline natural gas composition varies and can contain high levels of heavy hydrocarbons, such as ethane, which leads to poor engine performance. LNG is purified prior to liquefaction resulting in higher and more stable methane levels.
LNG fuel systems require fewer tanks than CNG. An LNG fuel system is 1000 lbs. lighter than CNG and 0-500 lbs. lighter than diesel.
The 2018 Cummins Westport ISX12N enables a 90% reduction in NOx and Particulate Matter emissions with a maintenance free Three-Way Catalyst Aftertreatment. Kinetrex has access to Liquefied Renewable Natural Gas (LRNG) which allows fleets and shippers to reduce emissions across the supply chain. LRNG offers greater savings than traditional natural gas and is cleaner than electric. Learn more about Kinetrex LRNG.

LNG is colorless, odorless, non-toxic, and non-corrosive. LNG is stored at low pressure and as a liquid will not explode. If spilled, it will evaporate and have no residual impact on the environment. When compared to CNG, LNG operating pressure is between 50-150 psi; CNG is 3600 psi.
