Transporting economically viable compressed gas liquids from remote fields
Even with the re-emerging CNG technology, there still remains a need for an economically viable,
efficient and flexible trans-ocean transportation system for moving natural gas from the remote or
stranded fields to market. Also, any marine gas transportation system must provide both the
producer and the market value. The emergence of CGL Carrier using
Compressed Gas Liquid (CGL) technology is designed to fill this void.
CGL transport gains its advantages from proven gas property research work. This work has
confirmed that under exact conditions of pressure, temperature along with specific mixture
compositions, a more dense volumetric packing of the natural gas can be attained within a given
volume than can be achieved in the same space using natural gas alone under the same
The concept of carrying more gas within a liquid matrix of NGLís has given rise to the term
'Compressed Gas Liquid' for this method of transport. The term 'LNG Lite' has also been
used to describe its relatively higher volumetric storage ratio (compared to CNG) using less exotic
equipment and at substantially lower CAPEX and OPEX than that required for LNG systems.
With its pipeline roots, the CGLô concept deploys a continuous large diameter steel pipeline
packed within the cargo holds of a converted vessel or above deck on a new-build vessel for
transporting the production gas as a liquefied cargo.
