Distribution via dedicated biomethane pipelines

If the point of consumption is relatively close to the point of production (e. g. less than 1 mile), the biomethane would typically be distributed via dedicated biogas pipelines (buried or above ground). For example, biomethane intended for use as CNG vehicle fuel could be transported via dedicated pipelines to a CNG refuelling station. For short distances over privately owned property where easements are not required, this is usually the most cost-effective method. Note that biomethane distributed via dedicated biomethane pipelines must compete with natural gas prices in the marketplace.
