CNG Fueling Station Codes, Standards, and Regulations

CNG fueling stations dispense gaseous fuel stored at very high pressures, and require specific design and construction practices, including building materials that differ substantially from those used for gasoline and diesel fueling stations. In addition, CNG stations must be designed and built based on numerous applicable codes, standards and regulations that reflect the unique properties of the fuel–with the purpose of ensuring safety.

This in-depth course is designed to provide an overview of all the applicable national codes and standards pertaining to CNG fueling stations, including the fire, mechanical, electrical and building codes. Training is available live in-person, live virtual, and on-demand e-learning.
