Medium-size LNG technology: on progress.

Author(s) : CHRZ V., EMMER C.


Large natural gas liquefiers and LNG (liquefied natural gas) tankers have been in service for decades, but most LNG is being evaporated and compressed into long distance pipelines. Recently, the authors have witnessed growing trends of LNG applications directly at customer sites. LNG has been widely used at off-pipeline energetic bases. A more advanced technological application is the use of LNG directly as automotive fuel at LNG or LCNG stations. Both the technologies bring economic as well as environmental benefits. Examples of this technology, like small liquefiers, road and railway tankers, large vacuum insulated storage tanks, off pipeline bases, car refuelling stations, and car on-board cryogenic fuel tanks are presented in the paper, as well as regions where this technology is being utilized.
