Natural gas for transportation

The right fuel for your fleet

More and more fleet owners and operators across North America are switching to natural gas so they can save on fuel costs and shrink their environmental footprint.

The right fuel for your marine vessels

Clean-burning natural gas can help you navigate the future. Today, we can provide you with liquefied natural gas to help you reduce your emissions and fuel costs. 



 Why make the shift to natural gas?


BC’s transportation industry is responsible for the largest share of provincial greenhouse gas emissions.1 By converting fleets, mining vehicles and marine vessels to natural gas we’ll be helping the province meet its carbon emissions reduction goals. Other benefits include:

Fuel cost savings

Natural gas vehicles can save 25 to 50 per cent in fuel costs compared to diesel.2

Compare your fleet's estimated diesel cost with compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) with our fuel savings calculator.

Fewer greenhouse gas emissions

Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced on a lifecycle basis by 15 to 25 per cent with natural gas compared to gasoline or diesel.3

Proven, market-ready technology

Mature technology and an abundance of natural gas vehicle manufacturers mean the time is right to make the shift.

Quieter operation

Natural gas vehicles are quieter than comparable diesel trucks,4 benefiting drivers and the communities they operate in.
