Gas 3.0

The new age of gas

Gas 3.0 is the new generation of technological solutions engineered by Galileo Technologies to take natural gas and biomethane benefits to new consumers. This cutting-edge advancement introduces new possibilities to increase the availability and reach of clean and low-cost energy in a sustainable way.

With Gas 3.0, we offer you the chance to monetize gas sources currently out of the system and to add up energy regardless of the scale.

Producción Distribuida de GNL
Small-scale LNG: Distributed LNG Production Solutions

Thanks to the capacity to liquefy gas directly from the wells, our Cryobox® LNG Production Stations allow the immediate monetization of the capture of flare gas, and the exploitation of stranded, shale or tight gas. This innovation, together with the Virtual Pipeline, allows upstream producers to replace the fuel in their equipment and to create an extensive system of natural gas distribution without the use of pipelines.

Compresión distribuida - Espina de pescado
Shale Gas Distributed Compression

This innovative natural gas production system overcomes the expensive traditional gas Gathering by installing high discharge pressure Wellhead Compressors. This change of paradigm emancipates the operating conditions in the wells, maintains optimal well-head pressure values and increases the pressure flow as per the network leading to the main gas pipelines.

Virtual Pipeline

Our Virtual Pipeline® technology stimulates the exploitation of new fields, connecting them to the gas network or to the consumers, without the need of laying pipes.

Biomethane Solutions

Our Microbox-Bio® and Cryobox-Bio® stations allow the compression or liquefaction of all kinds of biomethane right at the source and in the necessary scale. Hence, it is possible to monetize resources which lacked value before, and to provide clean fuels for transport, power generation and the industry as a whole.

Gas Eras

When we talk about Gas 3.0 or Third Generation Gas, it is key to understand the limitations of previous technological generations. Let’s take a look at the history of gas.

Gas 1.0 – The age of natural gas pipelines.

Natural gas is transported exclusively through end-to-end pipes, from rich natural gas fields to large urban areas. This effort implies large CAPEX and centralized infrastructure investments. However, small and geographically dispersed consumers are left unattended.

In the first half of the XX century, large pipelines are built, connecting regions rich in natural gas with important urban areas. As a consequence, natural gas increases its share in the energetic matrix due to its abundance and low cost. This positive impact gives place to compressed natural gas (CNG) as a transportation fuel, with an active participation from Galileo.
Gas 2.0 – The Age of Transportation Alternatives

Natural gas overseas trade starts following the logic of end-to-end transportation of large volumes. However, something starts to change: Galileo boosts CNG as a fuel and creates the Virtual Pipeline.

At the end of the '60s, liquefied natural gas (LNG) appears, simplifying the gas transport by ship from one market to the other.
In the early '80s, Galileo boosts the first CNG mass consumption experience: 2 million vehicles start to use this new fuel in Argentina.
In the mid '90s, Galileo introduces the CNG Virtual Pipeline. This new concept extends the reach of pipelines without actually using them. Natural gas reaches small and dispersed consumers.
Gas 3.0 – The Age of Gas and Distributed LNG Production

In the XXI century, the impact of climate change and the importance of energy cost in everyday life foster new energy production and consumption alternatives. Galileo decides to connect multiple and dispersed gas sources to new consumers. Our Gas 3.0 Model complements the rigid end-to-end transportation model with a new virtual networks one.

In a context of abundance of shale and tight gas in certain regions, the value of natural gas as a source of clean energy increases, as well as the benefits from the reduction of flaring and the transformation of biogas into biomethane. This dispersion and abundance of new gas sources turns the laying of pipelines economically unsustainable to take gas to consumers.
As a response to these new challenges, Galileo Technologies introduces the Distributed LNG Production Solutions: compact equipment is designed to condition and liquefy gas right at the source. This technological change allows to transport great gas volumes, such as LNG via the Virtual Pipeline System. Now, dispersed gas reaches isolated consumers, without pipelines and regardless of the scale.

Results

New gas sources reach new consumers, requiring reduced CAPEX.

It is possible to create the same availability on the road for gas fuels (LNG/LCNG), which diesel and gasoline currently benefit from.

Clean and economic fuels are readily available for high horsepower applications, and gas distribution in isolated communities becomes possible.
