What is LNG?

Natural gas is one of the cleanest-burning fossil fuels. It is also considered plentiful in North America. Natural gas reserves are, however, located far from places where it can be used. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is simply natural gas chilled down to about minus 160° C (minus 260° F). This temperature turns natural into a liquid, shrinking its volume by a magnitude of 600. The now “liquefied natural gas” can be stored and transported much more easily anywhere in the world. Once LNG reaches its destination, LNG is turned back into a gas at regasification plants.
