Things to know about the Piped Natural Gas or LPG reticulated system<

Nearly all of the cooking gas demands in the Indian households are served by LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) gas connection. With India currently being the second-largest LPG consumer in the world with a 90% countrywide coverage, the government intends to spread the use of Piped Natural Gas (PNG) which already has a significant consumption.

The Piped Natural Gas (PNG) or the LPG reticulated system will distribute cooking gas directly to your home or apartment through pipelines and the consumers can pay for it according to their use; just as one would pay their electricity bill.

This centralized distribution system consisting of a huge network of safe piping is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to the natural gas crisis in the country. Now let us have a look at the various things one should know about the Piped Natural Gas (PNG) or LPG reticulated system:


 1. Essentials

In apartment complexes in India, the Piped Natural Gas (PNG) or the LPG reticulated system is commonly seen as consisting of a gas bank with a common delivery line. Functioning as a centralized distribution system, it eliminates the need of having cylinders in the kitchen or inside the flat and also the consequential refill.

The basic control valves, regulator, and burner will be placed within the kitchen.


 2. Location

Each kitchen will have its own LPG cylinder, except it’s not located under the kitchen countertop, but sits in a bulk storage area. The gas bank or the gas storage facility will be located in a common area with a number of cylinders according to the requirement of the particular apartment complex or housing society.


 3. Installation and maintenance of LPG reticulated system

The LPG reticulated system can and should be installed and serviced only by expert professionals, who are well-versed with the industry standards and guidelines, keeping in mind the requirement of the customers.

Although it requires only very minimal maintenance, periodic inspection and monitoring are essential which again should only be done by expert professionals who have the necessary expertise.


 4. Transparency

As every LPG reticulated connection is equipped with a dedicated meter in the apartment or house to record the consumption, the consumer can be stress-free about their consumption and have transparency regarding the same.


 5. Safety

The LPG reticulated system being an advanced system to supply Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) to households is more secure and safe than the conventional cylinder supply. Designed and put together at every stage using state-of-the-art equipment and carbon steel pipes, the overall system has the best safety standards.

The constant and strict inspection as per the established guidelines at every stage ensures further safety along with the convenience factor.


 6. Payment

Unlike the traditional gas supply, the consumers will not be required to go to the market or store and stand in queue for depositing the monthly or annual bills. With a dedicated metered system in place at every home or apartment, every user can monitor their individual consumption details and pay for it from the comforts of their home.


 7. Additional usage

Apart from its use as a cooking fuel channel, the LPG reticulated system could also be used for operating geysers, LPG fireplaces, and air convectors during winter.

Having a Piped Natural Gas or reticulated LPG connection in an apartment also offers several advantages such as Uninterrupted supply of LPG, Safety and security, Space efficiency, Convenience, Property value addition, Beter aesthetics, Professional service, Transparency, etc.
