First Private LNG Facility Plant At Nagpur.:
Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari inaugurated the country’s first Private LNG Facility plant at Nagpur.
- Liquefied natural gas, or LNG, is natural gas in its liquid form. When natural gas is cooled to minus 259 degrees Fahrenheit (-161 degrees Celsius), it becomes a clear, colorless, odorless liquid.
- During the process known as liquefaction, natural gas is cooled below its boiling point, removing most of these compounds. The remaining natural gas is primarily methane with only small amounts of other hydrocarbons.
- Properties: LNG is neither corrosive nor toxic. Natural gas is primarily methane, with low concentrations of other hydrocarbons, water, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, oxygen and some sulfur compounds. LNG weighs less than half the weight of water so it will float if spilled on water.
- Liquification is done for easy storage and transportation. LNG achieves a higher reduction in volume than CNG.
- A majority of the world’s LNG supply comes from countries with large natural gas reserves.
