These rules are intended to control the design, construction, operation and maintenance of CNG and LNG stations and will be useful for globally certifying the fueling equipments (compressors, pumps, and so on). Argentina NGV industry is deeply involved in the CNG Draft Standard, through project leader and coordinator Diego Goldin, who is correspondent for NGVJournal.com, and also IRAM and Argentinean NGV Chamber member.
Furthermore, during the workshop and forum experts discussed the implications of the ISO standards for CNG and LNG Fuelling Stations. The meeting focused on “How will upcoming ISO NGV fuelling station standards affect you?” and was addressed to the NGV industry, the government, the automotive sector, oil companies and researchers. It was attended by 43 delegates from various countries of America, Asia, Oceania and Europe. The United States and Canada also took part in the event and are raising their interest in the activity as a result of new legislation already under discussion in the U.S. Congress.
Goldin was among the workshop’s speakers, along with Dr. Vaclav Chrz, from Czech Republic, LNG Working Group Leader, and Brett Jarman, Executive Director, NGV Global, who was in charge of organizing the event. The goal of the meeting was to spread the Committee’s activity among potential stakeholders, whose involvement is a key to ensure the standard is complete and addresses all industry requirements. The following debate included a significant participation from the audience, which proves the success of the forum.
Besides, the attendees have the opportunity to learn more about NGVJournal.US, a new site on the NGV American and Canadian market, with a worldwide projection, as well as to learn more about NGV Communications Group’s magazines The GVR and NGV Africa. What is more, the NGVJournal.us team is promoting NGV2012 Bologna, the 3rd NGVA Europe International Show & Workshops that will be held in the mentioned Italian city on next 19-21 June under the theme: “(Bio)Natural Gas, the affordable alternative for all transport modes”.
