Liquefied natural Gas is liquefied natural gasoline which is electronically cooled to liquid form for the safety and convenience of a transfer or storage. Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a highly volatile and flammable liquid, which is produced from petroleum substances like crude oil, natural gases, coal tar and petroleum diesel. It constitutes about 1% of the total volume of liquefied petroleum gas in the non-pressurized (free-flowing) state. It is stored under pressure and temperature conditions which are suitable for transportation.
There are three types of liquefied natural gases: onshore, offshore and onshore maturation. Onshore liquefied petroleum gas (OLG) is produced under the sea in onshore fields. The first liquefaction took place about four hundred years ago. Later, it was successfully transferred to the open air under high pressure and temperature conditions. On the other hand, offshore liquefied petroleum gas (OLG) occurs in oil well boreholes and plays an important role in generating energy in the wells.
In order to understand how the volumes of liquefied natural gas (OLG) are related to the volumes of petroleum gas produced, it is important to understand the nature of petroleum products. Natural gas (oil) is a product of petroleum which is in solid, gaseous or liquid state at ambient temperature. This means it is neither gaseous or liquid. Petroleum is classified as being onshore, offshore or mid ocean based on the physical properties of the component.
At the moment, the most widely utilised source of LPG is the liquefied natural gases (LNG). To compare the prices of LPG and LNG, it is best to use the price list provided by the producer of each type of petroleum product. For instance, a barrel of oil costs much more than a barrel of LPG. The same principle applies to the prices of LNG. The main reason behind this is that there is no liquid solution to the natural gas, whereas the LPG liquid solution is available at all times.
There are two main factors that impact the price of the liquified natural gas. These factors are weather and geography. For instance, the weather is the sole determining factor determining the price of west coast lng during the winter months. The weather conditions in the west coast range from cold and wet to warm and dry. The size and depth of the reservoir, its density, surface temperature, and the thickness of the snow pack all play an important role in determining the price of the oil.
There are three types of terminals used for storing and transporting the natural gases. Terminal configuration is dependent upon the size and weight of the natural gas. The most common configuration is a cold storage tank. These tanks are referred to as on-site storage tanks. This kind of tank is connected to the natural gas pipeline and is not connected to the public gas pipelines.
Cold storage tanks are effective solutions to meet the storage needs of the liquefied natural gases for transportation purposes. The on-site storage tanks are also beneficial because they prevent the transport of the natural gases for industrial and commercial applications. The most common types of on-site storage tanks are used for domestic purposes such as residential houses, offices, or factories.
A major environmental review body is responsible for ensuring that the LPG and LNG facilities are operated in a safe and environmental friendly manner. Most of the environmental review organizations to perform an environmental impact assessment study including assessment of potential threats, monitoring program, assessment of air quality, and analysis of water quality. An important aspect of an environmental review is risk management plan, which is designed to provide the adequate resources to address the identified threats and environmental impacts. The threat management plan is developed after identifying the pollutants and the mitigation measures to minimize the adverse effects on the environment.
