LNG Tank (Cryogenic Tank)

What is LNG?

LNG is an abbreviation for liquefied natural gas.

Natural gas is becoming more and more popular as clean energy, and many countries have ranked LNG as the preferred fuel, and the proportion of natural gas in energy supply has increased rapidly. Natural gas is a natural combustible gas that is naturally mined in the gas field, consisting mainly of methane. The LNG is condensed into liquid by cooling the gaseous natural gas at atmospheric pressure to -162 ° C. Natural gas liquefaction can greatly save storage space, and has a large calorific value, high performance.

 

In recent years, the global LNG production and trade has become increasingly active, LNG has become a scarce clean resources, is becoming the world’s new oil and gas industry hot spots. In order to ensure the diversification of energy supply and improve the energy consumption structure, some energy consuming countries pay more and more attention to the introduction of LNG, Japan, South Korea, the United States, Europe are large-scale construction of LNG receiving station. International big oil companies have also turned their new profit growth point to LNG business, LNG will become the next global competition for oil after the popular energy products.

China’s LNG industry is becoming more and more important. China is planning and implementing coastal LNG projects: Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Shandong, Liaoning, Ningxia, Hebei Tangshan, etc. These projects will eventually form a coastal LNG Receiving station and conveyor pipe network.
