LNG process

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is an extremely cold, colourless and odourless liquid that is produced when natural gas (mostly methane) is cooled to approximately -160˚C.

When natural gas is cooled and turned into liquid form its volume is reduced and it is therefore easier to store and safer and more economical to transport.

Specially designed onshore tanks store this very cold liquid and LNG carriers transport it safely across great distances to customers around the world.

Once it has arrived at its destination, the LNG is warmed and ‘regassified’ and is used for industry, electricity generation and in homes for heating and cooking.

A versatile, clean burning and abundant fuel, natural gas will be the world’s fastest growing, major energy source in future decades.
