- About LNG
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a cost-effective fuel solution in heavy-duty trucking, marine and rail transportation as well as high-horsepower applications such as drilling, mining and power generation. LNG has a number of significant benefits when compared to petroleum-based fuels, including the fact that LNG is:
LNG is a clean burning fuel that produces 30 percent less CO2 than oil and 50 percent less CO2 than coal. Unlike diesel, there is no residue after an LNG spill.
Over 96 percent of the natural gas consumed in the United States is produced domestically.
Abundant in supply
Based on current estimates, the United States has enough natural gas reserves to supply the demand for more than 100 years, making LNG a reliable, sustainable alternative fuel. In addition, the abundant natural gas supply has led to lower and more stable natural gas prices.
LNG is the same natural gas used in your home, but in a liquid form.
