Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

LNG is natural gas that has been converted to liquid form by cooling to -260 degrees Fahrenheit, facilitating its storage and transport. LNG pumps can be located anywhere along the interstate highway, reaching even the most remote locations.

Some Benefits of LNG:

  •  The process of liquefying natural gas creates a cleaner-burning, more efficient fuel.
  •  LNG takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas, allowing for greater volumes to be stored and transported.
  •  LNG is produced using natural gas, an abundant, domestic fuel.
  •  LNG produces 25% fewer CO2 emissions than oil.

Who Uses LNG?
Fleet operators, primarily those using larger, heavy-duty trucks, who want a more affordable, cleaner-burning domestic fuel. In 2014, long-haul trucking and natural gas extraction companies purchased 465 million cubic feet of LNG from PGW. Those numbers are projected to increase, as more companies make use of LNG.
