Welcome to the first of our ‘What is…?’ series of articles, in which we describe
various aspects of the ADGAS world. This week we’re looking at LNG, and LPG.
LNG stands for Liquefied Natural Gas and is our primary product. The gas is made
up of mainly Methane which we condense and transport. Rather than squeezing the
gas, as the word condensing may suggest, we freeze it to −162 °C (−260 °F). This
removes the unwanted elements of acid, dust, gases, and hydrocarbons.
LPG stands for Liquefied Petroleum Gas and is different to LNG. LPG is commonly
named propane / butane and is used more often to reduce the use of harmful
Chlorofluorocarbons in aerosols and refrigerants. This fuel is also used for
cooking and increasingly as auto fuel.
These are just some of the terms you’ll hear at ADGAS and these particular ones
describe our product lines. Thank you for reading, see you next time for more
