Natural gas is principally composed of methane (CH4) and is found in natural reserves. As a primary energy source, it offers many qualities, and is the cleanest fossil fuel.
It is appreciated for its high calorific value, ease of use, and environmentally-friendly composition.
Natural gas is odourless, but an artificial odorant is added to enable detection in the event of a leak.
When natural gas burns it does not emit dust, soot or smoke, producing only water vapour and carbon dioxide, much like human breath, which is then transformed back into oxygen by plants. It is the most energy-efficient of all fossil fuels on the market.
An explosion of natural gas can only occur if the following three factors occur simultaneously:
Every care is taken in at LNG terminals to prevent these three things occurring at the same time.
For security reasons, our sites visits are highly regulated. For any request, please contact us (click here).
Please use the Contact page to submit any requests and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
You can visit our Recruitment section where you will find details of our jobs along with openings. Any applications for jobs not listed under openings will also be considered.
