What is LNG?
Liquefied Natural Gas – or “LNG” – is natural gas in liquid form. When natural gas at ambient pressure is cooled to about -260 degrees Fahrenheit (-162 degrees Celsius) it becomes “liquefied” and reduces the volume to approximately 1/600 of its original size, making it easier to transport. Natural gas is projected to be the fastest-growing fossil fuel in the coming decades.
Why Use LNG?
LNG offers tremendous benefits for consumers and the environment: It is versatile, clean-burning, safe, and abundant. Once LNG is regasified it can be made available for a variety of uses.
- Clean-Burning: Natural gas emits less carbon dioxide than other fossil fuels
- Safe: LNG’s physical and chemical properties – including the fact that it will not ignite in its liquid state – make it safer than other commonly used hydrocarbons.
- Energy Independence: The U.S. has an abundance of natural gas.
