How is LNG produced & transported?

When Natural Gas is available in surplus in locations where it cannot be consumed on account of less demand, it is either compressed or liquefied for the better logistical cost to be transported over longer distances.

Waterways are the cheapest form of transportation globally and when LNG has to be transported across continents it is shipped through LNG tankers. On being docked at land mass, LNG is transported through LNG tankers mounted on truck trailers or rail wagons, or transported through gas pipelines in regasified form. Converting Natural Gas to LNG is an easy and economical way of transporting natural gas from the source to the consumption point.
