Compressed Natural Gas

Tas Gas, through its fast-fill Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) facility at Selfs Point, is able to provide a competitive fuel option for businesses in the local area.

Tas Gas currently provides this competitive fuel service to the Hobart City Council who adopted CNG for its fleet in 2009 and was the foundation customer. Tas Gas continues to pursue opportunities in the local market.

CNG produces lower emissions than other fossil fuels – CNG’s particulate matter and nitrogen oxide emissions are lower than diesel, petrol and hybrid vehicles. CNG vehicles have been tried and proven interstate and overseas. “There are more than 12 million CNG purpose-built vehicles worldwide and about 2500 CNG buses operating in Australia’s metropolitan areas.”
