Background Details

The utility company had to perform a pressure test on the system as part of routine integrity testing, while also conducting some critical infrastructure upgrades to ensure sufficient pipeline supply to a growing commercial & residential area of the city.

In order to do this, the utility was forced to shut in the single feed supply to the hospital, which relied heavily on natural gas to perform critical care functions for its patience. The hospital utilizes natural gas supply for several operational functions, including heating water for patient showers, food preparation & cooking, and most importantly sanitation services.

The hospital complex was solely dependent on Sapphire’s mobile LNG Virtual Pipeline services for approximately 48 hours and experienced an uninterruptible supply of mobile natural gas to support full hospital functionality!
