What is liquefied natural gas (LNG)?
LNG is the colorless form of natural gas which is cooled to -162 ° C at atmospheric pressure and passed to liquid phase. Refrigerated natural gas is reduced by 600 times as a result of liquefaction, making it much easier and safer for transport and storage processes. LNG, which is ideal for stocking natural gas and transporting it to places where national pipelines do not reach, is converted into gas before entering the distribution in the pipeline or before the end-use process. LNG is used as a low-cost and environmentally friendly alternative fuel in the transportation sector, especially in ships, trains and trucks, as well as in homes, offices and industrial areas to produce heat or electricity.
