Natural gas offers an affordable, available and environmentally acceptable option to power people’s lives today. It will also help to meet the world’s rising demand for more, cleaner energy into the future. Shell is using advanced technology to open up new resources of natural gas. Cooling gas to liquid shrinks its volume 600 times for shipment to distant markets.
We are moving ahead to build the world’s first giant floating facility to turn gas to liquid, Prelude FLNG that will be located off the coast of Australia. Natural gas has the potential to help meet the growing global demand for transport. Converted into different forms, it can fuel ships, trucks, buses and trains. In Qatar, we have constructed the world’s largest plant to turn natural gas into liquid products.
