Clean energy from the bowels of the earth
Our prices take into account the needs of our customers as well as different types of fuel and energy solutions. Our pricing considers both gas-gas and gas-oil competition and customers can choose to buy gas on the basis of a Price Formula or at a Fixed Price.
Gas prices change monthly on the basis of changes in European natural gas markets.
Our Price Formulas consider the quantity of gas sold, the type of index, the consistency of consumption, security of supply and the payment terms.
Fixed Pricing takes into account both the gas price and the price-fixing charges. Because the gas price is agreed upon for the duration of the contract, invoicing is easier and future costs are not the subject of guesswork.
Advantages of natural gas
Natural gas is mainly comprised of methane and has good calorific value. It is the most environmentally friendly source of energy. The burning of natural gas does not generate any of the harmful combustion residues, dust or soot you associate with other fossil fuels. In fact, all that is left behind is carbon dioxide and water vapour. And because natural gas is mostly transported through pipelines it helps reduce air pollution while easing the burden on traditional infrastructure.
Today, natural gas is one of the most affordable sources of energy in terms of both initial investment and running costs. Modern gas boilers are fully automated, designed and built to meet energy needs even during the cold winter months. By comparison, heat pumps require assistance from electricity during colder periods.
Natural gas offers a number of opportunities for industry. In addition to the production of heat and electricity, high-energy natural gas can be used directly in industrial processes – for example in the glass and building materials industry – as well as a raw material for the chemical industry.
The calorific value of natural gas is around 10.5 kWh/m3, while its maximum combustion temperature is over 2100 ° C. The use of natural gas enables flexible consumption depending on technological needs. In the absence of a gas pipeline it’s possible to set up an LNG tank and regasification unit.
The use of natural gas enables the automation of combustion processes and natural gas achieves the desired combustion temperatures quickly and reliably.
We provide natural gas for road transport and the bunkering of ships with compressed natural gas (CNG) being used primarily for land transport and liquefied natural gas (LNG) showing great potential for both marine transport and international road haulage.
EU Member States have established minimum requirements for their LNG refuelling infrastructure. By 2025 the goal is to cover the EU main road network with CNG filling stations at least every 150 km and LNG gas stations at least every 400 km.
The EU has also adopted an action plan for the development of an LNG bunkering network by 2025.
