Course Description

Introduction

LNG is natural gas that has been converted to liquid form by cooling -160C for the ease of storage, transportation and distribution. Natural gas currently accounts for 22% of aggregate global energy supply. LNG is the most energy efficient fossil fuel— it offers important energy saving benefits when it is used instead of oil or coal. It is also a source of hydrocarbons for petrochemical feedstock and a major source of elemental sulphur. Its popularity as an energy source is expected to grow substantially in the future because LNG can help achieve two important energy goals for the twenty-first century— providing the sustainable energy supplies and services needed for social and economic development and reducing adverse impacts on global climate and the environment in general.
