CNG Installation Permits

All stationary facilities for commercial use must be permitted. Filings required for permitting are based upon the storage capacity of the facility.

Plans must be submitted PRIOR to installation of containers at facilities having an aggregate storage capacity greater of  84,500 standard cubic feet. The construction of the installation cannot begin until the plans are reviewed and approved by the Alternative Fuels Safety (AFS) department. The requirements for plan submission can be found in §13.25(b) of the Regulations for Compressed Natural Gas. The plans are submitted with a CNG Form 1500. Filing fees are required for original and re-submissions. A Form 1500 Submission Checklist may be used to assist the applicant in determining all items are submitted correctly.

At facilities with an aggregate storage capacity less than 240 standard cubic feet water volume, licensees must submit a Completion Report, CNG Form 1501, within 10 days of completing a container or cylinder cascade installation. The report verifies that the installation complies with applicable safety regulations. The form is submitted with a filing fee for each container or cascade listed on the completion report. (Not for each container in a cascade.) If the form must be resubmitted due to incorrect or missing information, a resubmission fee is required; the fee is charged per returned form, NOT per container/rack.
