Liquefied Natural Gas

Is natural gas, cooled to minus 161°C until it becomes a liquid. It is stored under atmospheric pressure and reduced in volume by the ratio of 1:600.

As a liquid, natural gas is easier and less costly to transport, particularly where access to pipelines is not available.

Once regasified at its destination, it serves the same purposes as natural gas, such as a consumer fuel for heating, cooking or electricity generation.
