Liquefied Natural Gas - LNG
Liquefied natural gas is natural gas condensed in a liquid state. At the port of shipment, the natural gas is liquefied by successive expansion and cooling (to -163°c). Its volume is then reduced by 600 times. The LNG tankers then take care of its transport. At its destination, the LNG is stored in insulated tanks, then transformed by evaporation and injected in gaseous form into land-based pipelines.
