BUSINESS CHALLENGES
Industry Problems and Pain Points

Low Industry Standardization

There are various methods for natural gas measurement; a unified industry standard is yet to be established; numerous midstream and downstream enterprises vary in quality; and price wars lead to low-level services.

Supply-chain Lacks Transparency

Should any supply-chain issues arise during transportation, such as adulteration, it is hard to judge who should be held responsible. The fact that the data of upstream and downstream companies are kept separate adds extra difficulty to dispute resolution.

Low-level Digitization

Low-level digitization, which is a common issue for many enterprises, leads to inefficient business operations and management.

VECHAIN
Solution Overview
  • By leveraging blockchain and IoT technology, VeChain’s LNG solution can keep track of the core data of the whole process from source to end, such as the information of natural gas, natural gas storage tanks, transportation, online transactions, etc. The data collected will be uploaded to the VeChainThor Blockchain to ensure its authenticity, reliability, and effectiveness.
  • By entering/scanning order numbers through the designated mini-program or app, the users can access the basic information of the goods, logistics, and transactions. The time and volume of each transaction are made public, thus keeping the users abreast of the real-time progress of the transactions at any time and any place.
  • This solution also allows the enterprises to keep track of the business process based on the reliable data stored on the blockchain, optimize energy distribution strategies, and ensure the balance between supply and demand.
