Liquefied Natural Gas

UGE is one of the leading suppliers of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the region that later on transported and supplied among many countries across the globe where natural gas plays a vital role in the domestic energy supply and in achieving the economic and environmental goals.

UGE is acting as a middle man and helping developing countries with plentiful natural gas resources that are particularly interested in earning an income of their natural gas resources by exporting it as LNG. Conversely, more developed nations with little or no domestic natural gas rely on imports of LNG. UGE is able to assist in making this opportunity profitable for both sides.

The world has enormous quantities of natural gas, but much of it is located in the far out areas and the sea. To move this environmentally friendly fuel across oceans, the natural gas must be converted into liquefied natural gas (LNG). LNG is natural gas that has been cooled to –260° F (–162° C), changing it from a gas into a liquid 1/600th of its original volume.

UGE takes very seriously the process of cooling natural gas into a liquid which is called liquefaction. Like at any industrial facility, security issues for liquefaction facilities are tailored to regional and local concerns.

This dramatic reduction allows it to be shipped safely and efficiently aboard specially designed LNG vessels owned by UGE.

UGE owned LNG ships are equipped with sophisticated leak detection technology, emergency shutdown systems, advanced radar and positioning systems, and numerous other technologies designed to ensure the safe and secure transport of LNG. As in all modern oil tankers, sophisticated radar and positioning systems alert the crew to other traffic and hazards around the ship.

After arriving at the destination, LNG is warmed to return it to its gaseous state, converted back to gas and fed into the natural gas pipeline system.

Advantages of LNG:

  • Relatively inexpensive
  • An LNG spill would not damage the ground or leave any residue as it evaporates
  • In water, LNG is insoluble and would simply evaporate, making water-spill cleanup unnecessary
  • LNG is not a flammable liquid, so it will not explode or burn. Like other fuels, when it vaporizes and mixes with oxygen, it is flammable if it is exposed to an ignition source. If the concentration of natural gas in the air is below 5% or greater than 15%, it will not ignite.
