Is LNG commonly used in the U.S.?
Yes. In the U.S., there are already about 110 LNG facilities. In New England, there are 46 LNG storage tanks located in 31 communities. Some of these LNG facilities also have the capability to liquefy natural gas in the summer. When the demand for gas rises, LNG can be quickly vaporized (warmed up) back into its natural gas form and delivered to a pipeline grid. During the winter, as much as 40% of New England’s gas supply may come from LNG.
