In the US and many developed countries, natural gas (NG) has become the energy source of choice because of its minimal environmental impact and ease of distribution. Depending on the cost of crude oil, NG can also offer economic benefits. For all of these reasons, global NG demand has increased in both established and emerging economies. Background. In many developed nations, NG production is declining while demand continues to increase. In developing countries, NG usage has also increased. Yet, if NG resources do exist, insufficient infrastructures hinder delivery of gas to where it is needed. Where no pipelines are available, NG can be liquefied cryogenically (–260°F). The
