Our LNG will be shipped direct from Qatar as per the requirement of the Customer/s.
What is LNG?
LNG is liquefied natural gas, a clear, colorless, non-toxic liquid that forms when natural gas is cooled to -162ºC (-260ºF).
This shrinks the volume of the gas 600 times, making it easier to store and ship to energy-hungry towns and cities
overseas so that when it reaches the destination, it will be returned to a gas at a regasification facilities and subsequently
piped to homes, businesses, industries, etc.
There are so many different applications for this fossil fuel that it is hard to provide an exhaustive list of everything it is used for. And no doubt, new uses are being discovered all the time. Natural gas has many applications, commercially, in your home, in industry, and even in the transportation sector! While the uses described here are not exhaustive, they may help to show just how many things natural gas can do. The major uses include
• Residential uses
• Commercial uses
• Industrial uses
• Transportation sector
• Electric generation
LNG...A SAFE FUEL IN A SMALL PACKAGE
Natural gas consists almost entirely of methane (CH4), the simplest hydrocarbon compound.
Typically, LNG is 85 to 95-plus percent methane, along with a few percent ethane, even less
propane and butane, and trace amounts of nitrogen (Figure 2). The exact composition of natural
gas (and the LNG formed from it) varies according to its source and processing history. And,
like methane, LNG is odorless, colorless, noncorrosive, and nontoxic.
Natural gas is condensed to a liquid by cooling it to about -260°F (-162°C).
This process reduces its volume by a factor of more than 600 similar to reducing the
natural gas filling a beach ball into liquid filling a ping-pong ball (Figure 3). As a result,
just one shipload of LNG can provide nearly 5 percent (roughly 3 billion cubic feet) of the U.S. average
daily demand for natural gas, or enough energy to
heat more than 43,000 homes for an entire year!
LNG is transported by ship to terminals in the United States, then stored at
atmospheric pressure in super-insulated tanks. From storage, LNG is converted
back into gas and fed into the natural gas pipeline system. LNG is also transported
by truck to satellite storage sites for use during peak periods of natural gas demand—in
the coldest weather for heating and in hot weather for fueling electric power generators,
which in turn run air conditioners.
