Marine Gas Oil (MGO): Refined from crude oil, Gas Oil is a middle distillate liquid. There are two recognised standards of gas oil:
Class A2/ULSGO: Class A2 gas oil is also known as ULSGO (ultra-low sulphur gas oil). Class A2 meets the current BS2869 and ISO 8217 specifications and has a maximum sulphur content of 10ppm (0.001%).
Class D: Class D has a maximum sulphur content of 1000ppm and meets the current BS2869 and ISO 8217 specifications. Also known as 1000ppm, 0.1% or LSGO (low sulphur gas oil).
Shell GTL (Gas To Liquid): Certas Energy is the sole distributor of Shell GTL Fuel in the UK. This paraffinic fuel offers a cleaner-burning alternative for use in diesel engines. Suitable for off-road applications, it both lowers emissions and improves air quality and can be used as a direct replacement for conventional dielse fuels with no modifications needed.
The GTL technology lowers local emissions of regulated pollutants: Particulate Matter (PM), Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrocarbons.
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG): LNG is created by cooling natural gas to an extremely low temperature (-162ºC). This cooling process turns the gas into a liquid that takes up 600 times less space than when it’s a gas. This means it requires less storage capacity. It’s incredibly lightweight, too. In fact, it’s lighter than water - which makes it easier to get to you.
What’s more, it’s non-toxic and non-polluting – which means a safer, more environmentally friendly fuel for your business. All of these benefits make LNG ideal for off-grid high energy user looking for a cleaner, greener, more cost-effective alternative to oil.
