Compressed Natural Gas Animation

This interesting and excellent video presents a graduation project. I'm not sure which university the students are from, but from the video we know they are Mechanical Engineering students. According to the video description, this project handles the transportation of Natural gas from Sidi krir, Egypt to Vasilikos, Cyprus, utilizing modern technology of compressing the gas "CNG". The project discusses the new concept of using Compressed Natural Gas technology, which lets the gas under the conditions of 250 bars, 25 deg C, and to be shipped to Cyprus by a normal-modified container ship. The Video is created by 3D Max by Ahmed Fathy and Yasser Fathy. For more info contact: yaser.fathy@yahoo.com




Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a substitute for gasoline (petrol) or diesel fuel. It is considered to be an environmentally "clean" alternative to those fuels. It is made by compressing natural gas (which is mainly composed by methane (CH4), in a percantage range of 70% to 98%). It is stored and distributed in hard containers, at a normal pressure of 200/220 bars, usually in cylindric of spherical shapes to maintain equal pressure on the walls of the containers.

CNG is cheaper as fuel for our car compared to petrol/gasoline. I wonder when will I use CNG for my car? The biggest obstacles are the cost to install a CNG engine and the lack of petrol station supplying CNG in this country. I hope and pray the cost of CNG engine and its installation can be cheaper as well as to see more petrol station supplying CNG.
