Liquefied Natural Gas or LNG is natural gas condensed at -163 degrees at atmospheric pressure by purifying the pollution in the processed natural gas. This gas, which is kept in iso containers due to its coldness, is dangerous and flammable. When a volume of LNG is evaporated, 600 volumes of natural gas (CNG) are obtained (600 times the volume containers). LNG is a colorless, odorless and non-toxic liquid. It is flammable. When it is turned into gas, scenting is done. There are ethane, propane and other hydrocarbon-based heavy gases in natural gas (90-92%), which is mostly formed by methane (CH4). LNG is cleaner than natural gas as contaminants are removed while liquefying.

Gas Properties

LNG is difficult to store and transport. First of all, heat exchange with air is prevented by insulation and transported in cryogenic tanks. Although it is difficult to transport, it does not pollute the environment because of its low pollution rate and is more preferred because it is cheaper than other gases. Its combustion rate is higher than other gases. It provides savings in terms.
