What is LNG?

Liquefied Natural Gas, also referred to as LNG, is natural gas cooled in the process known as liquefaction, to minus 161 degrees centigrade. Cooling natural gas in this manner reduces its volume by 600x and turns it from a gas to a liquid. The LNG is then transported all around the world using specialized ocean going tankers. At its destination the LNG is returned back into a gaseous form for use.
