Part of doing business with Blue Energy Fuels (BEF) is safety. We train your staff in the safe operation of the equipment. CNG has so many rules and regulations built into the design of every station that they are intrinsically safe, but we train and retrain on an ongoing basis.
A CNG fueling station has many moving parts, parts that get hot, parts that use high voltage electricity, and storage tanks that store CNG at very high pressures. Having said all that, CNG stations are very safe, we think they are safer than gasoline stations.
Formal training for CNG mechanics & technicians:
Tulsa Technology Center at Broken Arrow
Oklahoma City Community College
Why CNG is the Safe Alternative Energy
CNG fueling stations are a sealed system, there should never be a leak, ever!
CNG is lighter than air, it does not pool on the ground.
CNG or natural gas will only ignite in a very narrow range of fuel to air mixture, 5% to 15%. More or less gas than that percentage range and the fuel will not burn.
The ignition point of CNG is over 700 degrees hotter than gasoline, well in excess of 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit or 593 degrees Celsius. Gasoline ignites at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
