To facilitate reporting of fossil natural gas pathways, staff has
certified an ARB pathway for North American Natural Gas to
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).  This pathway uses a compression
efficiency of 97 percent (average station compression efficiency
for CNG pathways certified between 2016 and Q1, 2017).  Reporting
parties for this fuel may use a Fuel Pathway Code of CNGF205 with
a CI of 79.46 g/MJ effective Q1, 2017.   

Background on the LCFS

The Low Carbon Fuel Standard is a regulation to reduce the carbon
intensity of fuels sold in California ten percent by 2020.  The
LCFS is one of the measures adopted by the California Air
Resources Board, pursuant to Health and Safety Code Sections
38500-38599 (AB 32) to reduce greenhouse gases in California.  It
is designed to help clean the air, protect the environment, and
drive the development of clean, low-carbon fuels to improve
California's energy security and energy independence.
