Truck loading facility
An LNG truck loading facility is the equipment to deliver to an LNG tanker the Liquid Natural Gas you have in a LNG Terminal Reception Plant.
The purpose of LNG road tanker loading is supply Liquid Natural Gas on different final Applications:
1. LNG as fuel in Natural Gas Fuelling Stations (for trucks and ships). LNG/LCNG
2. Natural Gas to industrial sites not connected to the national transmission network by pipeline.
3. Delivery LNG to regasification Plant for domestic final customers
Other Product & Services
When there is no Natural Gas Pipeline, you can deliver LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) from the source to the final user by a Virtual Pipeline.
The liquefaction Plant is the key point in the virtual pipeline because it’s an easier and cheaper way of transporting Natural Gas over long distances.
The LNG is stored in tanks and transported by road tankers at a temperature of around -161°C and at a pressure between 1 and 3 bars.
The shipping industry needs to reduce emissions from its use of fuels. Riverships, harbour tugs, tourist & passenger ships, ferries and Industrial ship transportation are moving fast to much cleaner fuels and LNG is the only full reasonable fuel they can use.
Once received and offloaded, the LNG is returned to cryogenic storage tanks, where it is kept at a temperature around -161°C prior to regasification.
Natural gas fueling station
Today's vehicles are filled with different kinds of liquefied gas: methane (natural gas), propane, butane and their mixtures (so-called hydrocarbon gases).
