Traditional Gas Transport Modes Article

 In Article

Check out the following article our Vice President Cathy Farina co-authored with Freek Van Heerden and Anton Putter from Owner Team Consultation about the different natural gas modes of transport.

In this article, we discuss traditional gas transport modes. It covers the importance of gas logistics and how gas is traditionally moved from areas of production to areas of consumption, including by pipeline, as compressed natural gas (CNG), or liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The efficient and effective movement of natural gas (NG) from producing regions to consumption regions requires an extensive and elaborate transportation system. In many instances, NG produced from a particular well will have to travel a great distance to reach its final point of use.
Transportation of NG is intricately linked to its storage infrastructure. If produced NG is not immediately required, it can be stored for when it is needed. In addition, the handling of gas needs to be done safely and in an environmentally acceptable manner. It is important to understand the different modes of gas transport when looking at the gas logistics chain and which mode of transport is suitable for different scenarios.
