Liquefied Natural Gas Fundamentals (Ohio T&M)
In Liquefied Natural Gas Fundamentals , you'll learn ...
- How and why natural gas is liquefied
- The components of a typical LNG process
- Modern LNG storage and transport methods
- The details of two (2) major on-site accidents at LNG facilities
To meet the Ohio Board's intent that online courses be "paced" by the provider, a timer will be used to record your study time. You will be unable to access the quiz until the required study time of 100 minutes has been met.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas that has been converted to liquid form for ease of storage or transport. Natural gas is a major source of energy, but many consumers that need the energy live far away from the gas fields – even in countries located on the other side of the world.
LNG is a clear, colorless, non-toxic liquid that can be transported and stored more easily than natural gas because it occupies up to 600 times less space. Once LNG reaches its destination, it is returned to a gas at regasification facilities, and is then piped to homes, businesses and industries.
In this course, you’ll learn how LNG is produced, purified, stored, transported and regasified. You’ll learn how and why LNG is maintained at sub-freezing temperatures. Recommended quality control measures and liquefaction technology are also discussed.
Of particular importance in the field of LNG is safety during storage and transport, as leaks can result in accidents. Two famous LNG accidents in the U.S. and Algeria are reviewed, along with a discussion of the mechanics of gas explosions. You’ll see how the combustibility range, ignition temperature and dispersion characteristics of LNG make it safer to handle than some other fuels.
