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
- 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.
