What is LPG Reticulation System or Central Gas Supply Systems?

Central Gas Supply Systems is a complete installation for internal distribution of gas from a big tank/ cylinder to the various users or point of use.

LPG Reticulation system is a series of pipes that are installed around the perimeter of the dwelling for the distribution of LPG (gas). It’s a centralized piped gas system (or ‘gas on tap’), which is a way to deliver cooking gas through a network of pipelines that are connected to the main gas storage vessel/ tank.

In Central Gas Supply Systems/LPG Reticulate System, consumer gets 24 hours gas supply at the turn of tap. More households will prefer the system as it offers convenience in terms of space. Piped cooking gas supply to households is the latest value-addition being offered by reputed builders in the city.

What is a Reticulated/ Central Gas Supply System?

Reticulated Piped Gas System is supply of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) through a network of pipelines, from a centralized cylinder bank / manifold system or a Bulk Installation (Bullet, specifically for commercial applications) to customer (end user’s) kitchen and other gas appliances like geyser.

This is achieved by reducing the Storage Pressure (In LPG cylinders or tanks) to appliance pressure by means of suitable Pressure regulators with the extreme safety.
In this system, you get metered cooking gas delivered via pipelines straight to your home and pay for it exactly as you would pay your light bill. There is no cylinder involved.

Safety appliances like Filters, Over Pressure Shut Off Device (OPSO), Slam Shut Off Regulator, Relief Valves, etc are used in the system to enhance the safety of the installation. The changeover device could be Auto or Manually to ensures smooth changeover of supply of gas from active gas bank to standby gas bank.

Need for Central Gas Supply System in Nigeria

Nigeria requires about $750m investment in the transportation and retailing infrastructure for Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), popularly called cooking gas, to achieve the target of five million metric tonnes of annual consumption, operators in the LPG space have said.

It was also stated that Nigeria had the fastest growing LPG sector in the world with a projected LPG market size of $10bn, as the annual per capita consumption of LPG had risen from 1.8kg in 2015 to 5kg in 2021.

Nigeria’s domestic consumption of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) increased to 635,452.061 MT in 2018 and 840,594.37 MT in 2019, an increase of 60.5 per cent. The domestic consumption exceeded 1 million Metric Tons (MT) in 2020.

In 2022, Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Limited delivered only 40% of Nigeria’s liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) demand. The 60% shortfall was then imported by marketers.

According to Nigeria Midstream Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Agency (NMDPRA), Nigeria exported 700,000 Tons of LPG in 2022. In the same year, Nigeria consumed 1.4Million Tons, out of which 800,000Tons were imported.

However, this huge growth are restrictions by way of domestic availability. Lack of infrastructural facilities and shortage of gas has hampered the growth of the Petroleum Gas Companies. Today the public sector units are in no position to increase their bottling capacity. Today’s situation warrants an alternative system and Reticulated Gas System, being used in Europe and America, is the best solution to this problem.

Thus, the need for LPG Reticulated System Design & Installation for semi and big estate become a great need. This centralized distribution system supplies gas to each and every user through a network of absolutely safe system and is the best alternative to the conventional LPG distribution system. The rigours of getting a refill are totally eliminated and the consumer ‘pays for what the uses.
