What is LNG?

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is natural gas (predominantly Methane, CH₄) that has been converted to liquid form for ease of utilization, storage, and transport. It is about 1/600th the volume of natural gas in the gaseous state. It is odourless, colourless, non-toxic, and non-corrosive.

The liquefaction process involves removal of certain components, such as dust, acid gases, helium, water, carbon dioxide and heavy hydrocarbons. Natural gas is condensed into a liquid at close to atmospheric pressure, by cooling it to -162⁰C.

Energy density of LNG is 2.4 times greater than CNG and 15% higher than diesel. This makes LNG the most cost-efficient fuel for regions not served or under-served by gas.

Benefits of LNG

  • Reduction in the cost of transportation, cost of production and the cost of commodities.
  • Fuel security, through the utilization of domestic gas.
  • Increase in power generation by supplying LNG fuel to power self-generating factories & industries using costly and non-friendly fuel for the environment.
  • Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and related environmental benefi¬ts.
  • Create a balance on energy price between the pipeline connected areas and the other areas of the country.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Applications of LNG

LNG applications are diverse with maximum efficiency & less emissions. LNG is used as fuel for Industrial Boilers, Furnaces and Kilns; It is an economic alternative for industries.

When LNG is re-gasifi¬ed, it can be used in dehumidifi¬cation and on-site power generation for small isolated local estates and supermarkets. Generation of electricity (on or o grid) is the most common application for using gas as fuel source.

LNG is used as an automotive fuel to power fleet of trucks and buses. LNG is an economic alternative fuel for long haul trucking as it reduces the cost of transportation and logistics in Nigeria by over 35%. LNG can be converted to L-CNG to fuel smaller vehicles like cars etc.

LNG is an economic alternative for industries including:

Cement Power Plants
Mining Food Processing
Agro-Products, (Flour Mills, Oil Mills, Others) Beverages
Chemicals & Pharmaceutical Glass & Ceramics
Paper & Packaging Iron & Steel, other Metals
Construction & Building Products Plastic Processing
