Liquefied natural gas - Wikipedia

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas (predominantly methane, CH 4, with some mixture of ethane, C 2 H 6) that has been cooled down to liquid form for ease and safety of non-pressurized storage or transport.It takes up about 1/600th the volume of natural gas in the gaseous state (at standard conditions for temperature and pressure).. LNG is odorless, colorless, non-toxic and non-corrosive.
