LNG - Virtual Pipeline System
What is LNG?
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is natural gas that has been cooled to a liquid state, at about -162° Celsius,
for shipping and storage. The volume of natural gas in its liquid state is about 600 times smaller than its volume in its gaseous state.
LNG Distribution through Virtual Pipelines
The distribution of LNG essentially creates a virtual pipeline that is easy to transport to the end user through the use of fuel trucks.
The LNG virtual pipeline allows natural gas to be delivered to geographically remote locations whereby natural gas pipelines are not able to reach. As a result, accessibility of natural gas will no longer be a constraint with LNG virtual pipeline.
Benefits of LNG
Ease of delivery:
Does not require the use of natural gas pipeline system or grid infrastructure.
Cleanest Fossil Fuel:
Cleanest burning hydrocarbon with low emissions.
The combustion of natural gas releases significantly less carbon dioxide & sulfur dioxide. Moreover,
the combustion of natural gas does not emit any soot,
dust or fumes.
Less Space Required:
Allows more energy to be stored, leaving less space required for the tank farm.
Competitive price compared to other hydrocarbon fuel sources.
Prolonged equipment life & reduced maintenance cost.
LNG is commonly used as the dominant fuel source in industrial and commercial segments such as metal, glove, paper, petroleum, chemicals, stone, clay, glass, clothing, and food processing.
