Why natural gases cannot transport via pipeline from overseas countries ?
Low Temperature Effects
LNG is liquefied natural gas, which is the very cold
liquid form of natural gas--the fuel that's burned in
gas stoves, home heaters, and electric power plants.
When it warms back up, LNG becomes natural gas
again. You can't liquefy natural gas without cooling
At land natural gas is shipped by pipeline. But natural gas
needs to be liquefied (cooled to below -256 degrees F)and shipping to LNG carriers .This is the only
practical way to import from overseas countries.
All LNG ships have two hulls, in effect
a "double ship" that protects the
cargo in a collision or grounding.
As liquefied gas cargoes are often shipped at low temperatures it is important that temperature sensing equipment is well maintained and accurately calibrated.
Hazards associated with low temperatures include:
Low Temperature Effects in gas carrier - Causes of brittle fracture & contermeasures
Preventive measures against spillage of low temperature cargo
