The compressed natural gas is basically a pressurized natural gas that is utilised for heating purposes. The natural gas is pumped to a gas fueling station in an uncompressed state and it is later compressed on site. It is done by using reciprocating compressor that uses positive displacement for reducing the volume of gas contained in a cylinder. Thus, it is possible to compress a natural gas for using it in specially designed vehicles and you only need to have Reciprocating compressor and

Reciprocating compressor lubricant as the required materials.

You should get a connection to a natural gas pipeline and for that you need to get in touch with the local natural gas company and government authorities. They will provide information on obtaining a connection from of natural gas from their pipelines. Once you have obtained the natural gas connection, you can get a reciprocating compressor that compresses natural gas from the pipeline into such a form that suits to be stored in a compressed natural gas cylinder. A reciprocating compressor can be used for safely compressing the natural gas up to pressures of around 3,600 pounds per square inch.


You should lubricate your compressor for optimal performance and you can use high-viscosity, non-detergent lubricant for that purpose as it is specifically designed for lubricating reciprocating compressors.  You are required to connect the reciprocating compressor to the natural gas pipeline. You should ensure that you have received authorization for using the natural gas from the pipelines.

You should also turn on your compressor as it will use a piston for compressing natural gas from the pipeline at low pressure into a highly pressurized form. This highly pressurised form is suited for vehicular use.
