Abstract: Even with the drop in value of Gas the construction of LNG production facilities around the world continues to increase. Cooling natural gas to about - 260 F at ambient pressure results in the condensation of the gas into liquid form, known as Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). The formation of LNG is essential in the international transportation of natural gas, as LNG takes up about one six hundredth the volume of gaseous natural gas, making transportation over long distances more efficient. Liquification also has the advantage of removing oxygen, carbon dioxide, sulphur, and water from the natural gas, resulting in LNG that is almost pure methane.
