BELL Holding Corporation markets gas, primarily Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) since 10 years which we transport by train, road transport and shipping, mostly from the area of ex-soviet states through the Black Sea to Europe and North-Africa. Now we have subsidiaries in 4 countries and we are in 32 countries as independent and dinamically developing gas traiding company.
Types of marketed gas
Propane is a three-carbon alkane with the molecular formula C3H8, normally a gas, but compressible to a transportable liquid. A by-product of natural gas processing and petroleum refining, it is commonly used as a fuel for engines, oxy-gas torches, barbecues,portable stoves, and residential central heating. Propane is one of a group of liquefied petroleum gases.
Butane is a gas with the formula C4H10 that is an alkane with four carbon atoms. The term may refer to either of two structural isomers, n-butane or isobutane (or “methylpropane”), or to a mixture of these isomers. Butanes are highly flammable, colorless, easily liquefied gases. The name butane comes from the roots but- (from butyric acid) and -ane.
Liquefied petroleum gas, also called LPG, GPL, LP Gas, liquid petroleum gas or simply propane or butane, is a flammablemixture of hydrocarbon gases used as a fuel in heating appliances and vehicles. It is increasingly used as an aerosol propellant and arefrigerant, replacing chlorofluorocarbons in an effort to reduce damage to the ozone layer. When specifically used as a vehicle fuel it is often referred to as autogas.
Compressed natural gas (CNG) is a fossil fuel substitute for gasoline (petrol), Diesel fuel, or propane/LPG. Although its combustion does produce greenhouse gases, it is a more environmentally clean alternative to those fuels, and it is much safer than other fuels in the event of a spill (natural gas is lighter than air, and disperses quickly when released). CNG may also be mixed with biogas, produced fromlandfills or wastewater, which doesn’t increase the concentration of carbon in the atmosphere.
CNG is made by compressing natural gas (which is mainly composed of methane, CH4), to less than 1% of the volume it occupies at standard atmospheric pressure. It is stored and distributed in hard containers at a pressure of 200–248 bar (2,900–3,600 psi), usually incylindrical or spherical shapes.
