Natural gas: the facts

What is natural gas? Where does it come from? And what role does it play in everyday life? Get the facts here.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG)

We cool natural gas to make a liquid, shrinking its volume 600 times for easy shipping to distant markets.

Shell LNG Outlook 2022

It highlights key trends from 2021 and looks ahead to possible future supply and demand.

LNG for transport

Liquefied natural gas can be a cost-competitive and cleaner fuel for heavy-duty road transport, shipping and industrial users. 

Floating LNG

FLNG technology can tap into gas resources from underwater gas fields previously too challenging to reach.

Gas-to-liquids

Our gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology uses natural gas instead of crude oil to make liquid fuels, base oils for lubricants and other high-quality products. 

Methane emissions

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas. When it is released into the atmosphere it has a much higher global warming impact than CO2. Natural gas consists mainly of methane.

Tight and shale gas

We are safely tapping into huge resources of natural gas, known as tight and shale gas, held deep inside rock.
