The decades of experience in natural gas service, transportation, engineering, procurement, and construction results in offering the most comprehensive range of natural gas / RNG energy management solutions in North America.

Sapphire’s new vertical capabilities, through both internal expertise and strategic partnerships, provides a comprehensive approach to developing complete biogas solutions for its clients. Sapphire can service, invest in, or own and operate strategic biogas facilities throughout North America. The Sapphire team’s commitment to quality, safety, and reliability is present in every client engagement, thus ensuring a successful project.
