Characteristics of Natural gas

Methane is the main constituent of natural gas. This methane can be burned to generate heat from which steam can be produced and electricity is generated. 

Also natural gas is used as raw material in many factories including urea fertilizer factory. In many countries, including Bangladesh, natural gas is also used as domestic fuel.

Natural gas can be transported from one place to another in different ways. If natural gas is to be transported less than two thousand miles on land, then the pipeline is the best means. This distance was reduced to seven hundred miles by sea. Apart from the pipeline, natural gas can be transported as CNG and LNG. CNG means compressed natural gas or compressed natural gas. It is also methane but not in a liquid state like LNG, the gas is simply compressed at high pressure so that much of the gas can be stored in a small cylinder. LNG, on the other hand, is not compressed, but natural gas is cooled (refrigerated) so much that it becomes liquid at one time under normal pressure. 

LNG (liquefied natural gas left liquefied natural gas) is a natural gas that has been temporarily converted into liquid for the sake of conservation and transport. LNG is not a separate fuel, in fact it is a liquid form of natural gas. 

Natural gas is gaseous under normal pressure and temperature. By refrigeration technology, the gas is converted into a liquid by lowering the temperature of natural gas to -1 ° C. This liquid natural gas is called LNG, which is mainly used for transporting natural gas from its source to the market and its appearance is only for the benefit of transporting gas by sea. The biggest advantage of LNG is that when natural gas is liquidated under normal atmospheric pressure, its volume decreases by about five times.
