Cooling natural gas to around -162°C (-260°F) turns it into a liquid and shrinks its volume for easier shipment and storage. At Shell, we are exploring ways to broaden the use of LNG, from the traditional power generation sector to fuelling trucks and powering more of the world’s growing commercial transport fleets and vessels.

Beyond trucking and shipping, LNG also has the potential to be used in sectors such as rail and mining. We are also looking at options to increase LNG use in our own operations.
