Q-VP

Virtual Pipeline CNG Trailers

For Virtual Pipeline, Mobile and Temporary CNG Stations, Locomotive, Containership, and Mining

Quantum Virtual Pipeline Trailers provide delivery and storage of Compressed Natural Gas and other gaseous products to supply customers in areas where there is little or no infrastructure. The VP trailers are equipped with high-capacity, super-lightweight CNG storage tanks packed into a 45’ High-Cube  shipping container. The VP trailers can be filled at major gas pipelines then driven to customers for continual, uninterrupted supply of CNG. Fitting lightweight, high-capacity tanks into a standard shipping container means that CNG can be loaded onto a truck, train, or ship. The VP trailer stores gas at up to 5,000 psi enabling a single container to hold up to 645,014 SCF, the highest capacity in the industry. This includes the patented PerfectFillTM technology to ensure a full fill every time. The VP trailers are also a solution for flare gas. Today’s oil producers burn natural gas that comes out of their oil wells. It’s a colossal waste of energy and generates substantial unnecessary harmful emissions.
