E – 1937 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) – An introductory Course
This course introduces the learner, to the origins of natural gas, and to the use of LNG. LNG is widely used around the world. It is a very compact form of natural gas, in liquid form. It is used on very cold days, to supplement gas coming from the interstate pipelines to supply gas load centers, like New York, Boston and other major load areas.
Natural gas (which is essentially the same as vaporized LNG) is the cleanest burning fossil fuel as it contains the least amount of carbon of all the fossil fuels. Thus, many electric power plants now use natural gas or are converting from dirtier fossil fuels to the use of natural gas or vaporized LNG.
