About Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

LNG is natural gas in its liquid form. LNG is an odorless, non-toxic and non-corrosive liquid and evaporates quickly and disperses, leaving no residue. Natural gas is converted to LNG by cooling the gas to -162 degrees Celsius, at which point it becomes a liquid. This process reduces its volume by a factor of more than 600, making it efficient to be transported by sea to global markets. Transportation of LNG by marine carriers has a long record of safe operation. In LNG's more than 50-year shipping history, LNG carriers have traveled more than 150 million miles without a major incident.LNG Canada

LNG Canada is a joint venture comprised of Shell Canada Ltd., Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS), Mitsubishi Corporation and PetroChina Company Limited that is proposing to build and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Kitimat, British Columbia.

Shell currently has eight LNG projects in operation with 21 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) operational LNG capacity, in seven countries, one ready for start up and two new projects under construction and 15 mtpa of LNG options. Shell was a partner in the first-ever purpose built LNG carrier and has been delivering LNG safely for nearly half a century.
