[VIDEO] LNG 101: What is Liquefied Natural Gas and how is it produced?
Global energy demand is set to double by 2050 and as a result gas will form an increasingly important role. However transporting gas to regions far from gas fields can be both expensive and impractical.
Enter Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
LNG is the liquefied form of natural gas – this liquefaction compresses the volume of gas by up to 600 times. It is created by cooling gas to -162ºC (-260ºF) where it can then be stored and shipped easily across the globe. Once it reaches its destination LNG is then converted back into gas to for use by consumers both commercial and industrial.
