About LNG

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas that’s been cooled to a low temperature of -162 °C to become a liquid. From our LNG storage facilities, LNG is delivered by tank truck to either a permanent LNG dispensing station or mobile fuelling station on a customer’s property or a commercial fuelling station along a regional corridor. LNG delivery is an optional service that FortisBC can provide to you at a regulated rate.

LNG fuelling process

The LNG begins at a storage facility, then gets transported by a fuel delivery truck to and LNG dispensing station where a LNG tractor trailer can fuel up (18-150.10)


  • Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel. As a fuel, LNG produces relatively low emissions. It’s also odourless, non-toxic and non-corrosive.
  • When exposed to the environment, LNG rapidly evaporates, leaving no residue on water or soil. If spilled, LNG will not create a slick because 100 per cent of it evaporates, leaving no residue behind.
  • Switching to LNG from diesel or other fuels can help commercial customers save money and reduce emissions.
