What is the LNG Canada project?

LNG Canada is a large industrial energy project that will build and operate a terminal for the liquefaction, storage, and loading of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the port of Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada.

What is the temperature of LNG?

approximately -260°F
LNG is an abbreviation for Liquefied Natural Gas. When natural gas is cooled at a liquefaction facility to approximately -260°F (-161.5°C) at atmospheric pressure, it condenses into a liquid.

Is LNG dead in Canada?

In Canada, Bear Head LNG Terminal had financing fall through, LNG Canada is experiencing delays due to the pandemic that will cause cost overruns, while Kitimat LNG appears dead in the water after partners Chevron and Woodside Energy pulled out in 2019 and May 2021, respectively.

What is the density of LNG?

The density of LNG falls between 430 kg/m3 and 470 kg/m3 (3.5 to 4 lb/US gal). LNG is less than half the density of water; therefore, as a liquid, LNG will float if spilled on water.

What is the pressure in an LNG tank?

Cryogenics. The LNG fuel tank is a cryogenic container. This means that it stores the natural gas fuel as a highly refrigerated liquid at low pressure. Typically the fuel temperature is about -200°F/-130°C , and the fuel pressure is about 100 psig/6.9 bar.

Who is the largest natural gas producer in Canada?

Alberta is currently the largest natural gas producer in Canada.

What is normal temperature for LNG?

LNG is natural gas which has been converted to liquid form for ease of storage or transport. LNG takes up about 1/600th of the volume of natural gas. Depending upon its exact composition, natural gas becomes a liquid at approximately -162°C (-259°F) at atmospheric pressure.

What is the storage temperature for LNG?

LNG must be maintained cold (at least below -177°F [-83°C]) to remain a liquid, independent of pressure.
