General Facts

General facts about LNG

  • LNG is the same natural gas you use at home, cooled in an industrial process to -260°F, at which point the natural gas turns from a gas vapor to a liquid.
  • 1 cubic foot of LNG is equal to 600 cubic feet of natural gas.
  • 1.68 gallons of LNG has the same energy value as 1 gallon of diesel fuel.
  • LNG is sold in diesel gallon equivalents (DGE) for the transportation, drilling & hydraulic fracturing markets.


Cost Effective

LNG provides a cost effective alternative fuel solution.

  • 1 LNG gallon = 82.6 standard cubic feet of natural gas.
  • 1 LNG gallon = 0.70 diesel gallons (DGE).
  • LNG can be used to deliver fuel to assets in remote locations where pipeline natural gas cannot reach. Every mile of pipeline = $1,000,000.00 to install.
  • 1 LNG road tanker = 9,500 LNG gallons = 33,670 lbs of LNG = 785 MCF.



LNG is safe

  • LNG is not explosive or flammable. For LNG to be flammable, it must return to a vapor first. Natural gas vapor will only ignite in a ratio of 5% to 15% natural gas to air, and only if there is an ignition source present.
  • For natural gas vapor in a 5% to 15% concentration in air to be explosive, along with an ignition source, it must be in a confined area.
  • Natural gas vapor is not explosive in the open air.



LNG is an environmentally sustainable product

  • LNG is not corrosive.
  • LNG will not mix with water, as it floats.
  • If LNG is spilled, it quickly vaporizes and rises into the atmosphere.
  • There is no residue after an LNG spill on water or soil.
  • LNG is odorless and non-toxic.
