LNG as a transport fuel

Abstract:

The use of natural gas as a transport fuel (primarily in the form of compressed natural gas – CNG) has failed to make signifi cant inroads in most markets. LNG provides two and a half times the energy of an equivalent volume of CNG and the consequent greater range and effi ciency makes it a practical fuel for heavy road vehicles and ships, particularly where it can also provide cost and environmental advantages over existing fuels. The market is still in its early stages though the long-term potential could be signifi cant.
