Hey gang, CNGchat needs your help!

For over a decade we have enjoyed providing this little corner of the Internet for folks to discuss all things natural gas vehicles. It is the largest forum of its kind: with some 70,000 posts on over 11,000 topics. But with continued low gasoline & diesel prices and strong automaker support for electric vehicles, consumer interest in CNG has dropped considerably, and with it has visitor traffic here. As a result, Google ad revenues no longer cover hosting fees.

If you find CNGchat to be a useful resource then please consider making a modest donation to support keeping this remarkable pool of knowledge available to the alternative fuels community. Thanks!

    Sept 5 2017 by Michael Bates for NGTNews - Freedom CNG says pipeline operators provided an uninterrupted supply to all affected areas during Hurricane Harvey. Texas has over 150 natural gas stations, and each had supply throughout the storm. Also, the price was stable, and no shortages were reported. Freedom CNG, for example, was fueling METRO transit buses, garbage trucks, AT&T service vehicles and many other fleets in greater Houston.

          Nelson Bennett for BIV (Business in Vancouver) Sept 14 2017 - At the end of July, Malaysia s Petronas announced it was canceling its $36 billion Pacific NorthWest LNG project in Prince Rupert. With a current glut of LNG on the world market, and increasing competition from the U.S., which is suddenly a real player in the LNG space, the economics are not right for a major LNG project in Canada. Some NDP critics blame the new government, saying the NDP sent negative signals to the industry by officially opposing the Petronas project and vowing to increase regulatory burden on the natural gas and LNG industry.

          Figure out who s left. I see everything whittling down to who are the real players in this. Those players are Shell (LNG Canada), Chevron-Woodside (Kitimat LNG) and Imperial-Exxon (West Coast Canada LNG). Of these three, Shell's LNG Canada project is viewed to be the one with the greatest prospect of moving ahead. The project has all of its environmental certificates and the only major milestone left is a final investment decision, which has been indefinitely postponed.

          B.C.s dreams of a prosperous liquefied natural gas industry might be delayed but they are not dead, Liberal Leader Christy Clark insisted as she took her re-election campaign to the province s north coast April 13 2017. Clark attacked the NDP, saying the party would scrap LNG projects and that it has forgotten the province s wealth can be developed beneath the land. They have forgotten working people:

          May 28, 20107 - British Columbia s 2017 election is over and the results are final. The Liberals, led by Christy Clark, won 43 seats; the Greens, led by Andrew Weaver, won three seats; and the New Democrats (NDP), led by John Horgan, won 41 seats:

          Amy Judd for Global News May 10, 2017 - Ellis Ross, former chief of the Haisla First Nations and a prominent aboriginal leader, who is known for his support of LNG. In 2012, Ross was appointed the inaugural Chair of the Aboriginal Business and Investment Council by Christy Clark.

 biggest criticism from the industry of the former B.C. Liberal government s tax and royalty regime for LNG was a special LNG tax, which companies in the U.S. and Australia do not pay.

          A current glut of LNG on the market, much of it from new LNG plants in Australia, have whittled global LNG prices in half from what they were in 2013, when many of the big players, like Shell, were entering regulatory processes.

          Robin Rowland for National Post Sept 21, 2017 - China s plan to generate 15 per cent of its electricity from natural gas by 2030 will be a game changer for global natural gas markets that would create an undersupply of LNG two to three years earlier than expected. LNG demand has grown 12 per cent year-over-year and further growth would lead to projects being sanctioned in Canada.

            Andrew Kurjata for Canadian Press Jan 24, 2018 - A natural gas company has been fined $235,000 after 14 migratory birds were found dead in one of its containment tanks north of Fort St. John, B.C. Enforcement officers found the birds floating on the surface of an above-ground tank used to store fluid for the hydraulic fracturing process in 2013, but says the company has since installed equipment to ensure no other birds become trapped:


            Canadian Press Jan 24, 2018 - Mr. Weaver, whose Green caucus holds the balance of power in the B.C. legislature, says he and his fellow Green MLAs are prepared to bring down the NDP government if the New Democrats breathe a positive word about developing a LNG industry in the Speech from the Throne:
