Piped Natural Gas (PNG) – comfort and convinience
Ask any homemaker the troubles of gas cylinders and they can answer in an instant. There’s no assurance of quality, the cylinder is delayed and at times defective.
It might’ve worked a decade ago, but it doesn’t work for today’s fast paced life.
Meet Piped Natural Gas (PNG) – a convenient solution for today’s household.
PNG has several distinctions to its credit- of being a pollution-free fuel, easily accessible minus storage troubles, and being available at very competitive rates.
When you choose PNG, you are making a wise decision. Why not enhance your comfort and improve your lifestyle for the years to come? Experience the versatility and performance of this reliable energy source. With PNG you don’t need to make any choices, for its characteristics make it the best option for domestic and commercial purposes.
The source of PNG supply in Delhi is the famous Hazira-Bijaipur-Jagdishpur (HBJ) pipeline of GAIL (India) Limited. PNG offers the convenience of ensuring continuous and adequate supply of PNG at all times, without any problem of storing gas in cylinders.
The domestic consumers have to take upon themselves the trying task of booking an LPG cylinder refill, time and again. Then starts the wait for the deliveryman to deliver the cylinder. Switching over to PNG renders this entire exercise unnecessary. PNG also eliminates the tedious routine of checking LPG refill cylinder for any suspected leakage, or it being underweight, at the time of delivery. Moreover, the user is spared the inconvenience of connecting and disconnecting the LPG cylinder when out of gas. Precious space, occupied by LPG cylinders is also saved.
The combustible mixture of natural gas and air does not ignite if the mixture is leaner than 5% and richer than 15% of the air-fuel ratio required for ignition. This narrow inflammability range makes PNG one of the safest fuels in the world. Safety Tips
Natural gas is lighter than air. Therefore, in case of a leakage, it just rises and disperses into thin air given adequate ventilation. But LPG being heavier will settle at the bottom near the floor surface.
A large quantity of LPG is stored in liquefied form in a cylinder. With PNG, it is safer since PNG installation inside your premises contains only a limited quantity of natural gas at low pressure i.e. 21 millibar (mbar).
On leakage, LPG expands 250 times, which is not the case with PNG. Supply in PNG can be switched off through appliance valve (inside the kitchen) and isolation valve (outside kitchen premises), which fully cuts off the gas supply.
The user is charged only for the amount of PNG used, and no pilferage is possible with PNG as the billing is done according to the meter. A unique feature is that the user gets to pay only after consumption of gas. The domestic consumer pays the PNG bill only once in every two months.
Moreover, there are no minimum consumption charges ie, if there hasn’t been any consumption, there shall not be any bill.
The user pays the gas consumption charges based on the exact consumption reading provided by the meter installed at his premises. The bill is delivered at the user’s doorstep. List of collection centers/drop boxes
Round-the-clock customer support is assured through 24 hrs number 1860-180-1817 backed by control rooms, which are manned by engineers and trained technicians. Thus complaints, if any, are promptly redressed.
A versatile fuel
Natural gas is being used predominantly as a versatile fuel in many major cities catering to domestic and commercial applications, as a cooking fuel, for water heating, space heating, air conditioning, etc.
Natural gas is one of the cleanest burning fossil fuels, and helps improve the quality of air, especially when used in place of other more polluting energy sources. Its combustion results in virtually no atmospheric emissions of sulphurdioxide (SO2), and far lower emissions of carbon monoxide (CO), reactive hydrocarbons and carbon dioxide, than combustion of other fossil fuels.
In fact, when natural gas burns completely, it gives out carbon dioxide and water vapour. These are the very components that we exhale!
No daily liasioning
The consumer is spared the task of liasioning with oil companies and co-ordinating with them for ensuring the daily supply of fuel, because PNG is supplied directly through pipes.
The daily bills, settlements and reconciliation are also avoided as the consumer is billed once a month, and that too as per the meter reading.
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, for PNG is supplied through pipes.
Billing – No up-front payment
The user is charged only for the amount of PNG used, and no pilferage is possible with PNG as the billing is done according to the meter. The commercial consumer pays on a monthly basis. Moreover, there are no minimum consumption charges, ie, if there hasn’t been any consumption, there shall not be any bill.The user pays the gas consumption charges based on the exact consumption reading provided by the meter installed at his premises. The bill is delivered at the user’s doorstep.
Lower maintenance cost
With PNG, soot or ash accumulation and greasy spillages are absent from your appliance. Maintenance costs are, thus, driven down.
