TRILLION CUBIC METERS
World proven natural gas reserves in 2014 stood at 187.1 trillion cubic meters, sufficient to meet 54 years of global production
Natural gas is a fossil fuel that is found in deep underground rock formations, both onshore and offshore. It is drilled, extracted and piped to processing plants to be cleaned of impurities.
Natural gas is cleaned of impurities and liquefied by cooling it to a temperature of -160ºC.
At this temperature, the natural gas changes from a gaseous to liquid state, reducing it by 600 times its original size. Converting natural gas into colourless, odourless, non-corrosive and non- toxic LNG makes it safer and easier to store and transport gas.
of LNG deliveries were made in 2014.
Natural gas that has been converted to LNG is pumped into double hulled vessels specifically designed to handle the low temperature levels of LNG and prevent evaporation. LNG’s logistical flexibility helps improve security of supplies worldwide
OF UK GAS DEMAND
South Hook Gas can supply around 20% of total UK gas demand.
When the LNG ship arrives at its destination, the LNG is transferred to a regasification facility, and is heated to return to its gaseous state. The gas is then distributed to customers, providing energy to homes, business and industries.
