Quenching the energy thirst: Liquefied natural gas

Liquefied natural gas (LNG), which has long been a niche product because of its energy-intensive production process, is becoming an increasingly hot topic. The reason behind this is that liquefaction enables simpler transportation: in LNG form, natural gas can be shipped in tankers designed for this purpose. For long-distance transport, this is more financially attractive than the construction of pipelines for non-liquid natural gas. Find out here how natural gas travels from the borehole to the customer in the form of LNG, and what role chemical analyses have to play in this process.
