Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas that’s been cooled to a low temperature of -162 °C to become a liquid. Our marine customers are fuelled via a truck-to-ship process: LNG is delivered by tank truck from our LNG storage facilities to marine vessels.
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. In the unlikely event of a spill or leak, once LNG is exposed to air, it will warm up, turn back into a gas, rise and dissipate quickly – leaving no residue. If spilled on water, LNG won’t mix and will vaporize quickly.
- Switching to LNG from diesel or other fuels can help commercial customers save money and reduce emissions.
