Liquefied Natural Gas, or LNG, is natural gas in a liquid state. The liquefaction process occurs when the gas is cooled to -162 degrees Celsius, shrinking the volume of the gas by more than 600 times.
LNG is not stored under pressure. It is cooled, stored and transported at atmospheric pressure. That means, LNG is not explosive. This allows natural gas to be shipped safely.
Once the LNG arrives at its delivery destination, it is warmed back to its original gaseous state and sent through pipelines to be used for a range of purposes such as heating and cooling homes, generating electricity, and fuelling heavy-duty vehicles
