NG Advantage to Provide CNG via “Virtual Pipeline” in New York
NG Advantage, a Clean Energy company, has signed a contract to work with International Paper to deliver CNG to International Paper’s mill in Ticonderoga, New York.
NG Advantage will deliver CNG to the mill using its Virtual Pipeline which consists of compressor stations located on natural gas pipelines, a fleet of specially designed carbon fiber CNG trailers, and off-loading and monitoring equipment which NG Advantage is installing at the mill. Deliveries will begin in May of 2015.
International Paper initially awarded this contract to NG Advantage in order to begin using natural gas prior to the completion of a planned natural gas pipeline. However, as previously announced, International Paper decided to cancel the pipeline project for cost reasons.
The company has issued a new RFP for a long term trucked-CNG contract, starting when the current contract with NG Advantage ends. NG Advantage is a bidder for the long term contract as well.
