Natural gas consists mostly of methane and is drawn from gas wells or in conjunction with crude oil production. As delivered through the pipeline system, it also contains hydrocarbons such as ethane and propane as well as other gases such as nitrogen, helium, carbon dioxide, sulphur compounds, and water vapour. A sulphur-based odorant is normally added to CNG to facilitate leak detection. Natural gas is lighter than air and thus will normally dissipate in the case of a leak, giving it a significant safety advantage over gasoline or LPG.

Liquefied Natural Gas or LNG is natural gas stored as a super-cooled (cryogenic) liquid. The temperature required to condense natural gas depends on its precise composition, but it is typically between -120 and -170°C (-184 and –274°F). The advantage of LNG is that it offers an energy density comparable to petrol and diesel fuels, extending range and reducing refuelling frequency.

RAIPCO wide range of customers across Middle East. This ranges from private house-holders and hotels, to industrial and distribution businesses, caravan parks, poultry and arable farmers and petrol stations.

We take this further by providing customers with a Top Up service whereby we estimate gas usage and fill your tanks without a need for placing orders. This reduces the risk of gas running out - critical for many homes and businesses.

As a supplier of energy, we also have a responsibility to our customers. Recent studies have shown that LPG has lower carbon emissions than all other fossil fuels available off the main gas grid, and is cleaner burning with very low soot and sulphur emissions. It can also act as an effective standby for renewable energy systems such as solar and wind.
