EXPLOSION PROTECTION FOR THE LNG INDUSTRY

LNG MEETS EXPLOSION PROTECTION ON THE PATH TO CLIMATE-NEUTRAL ENERGY SUPPLY

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is the key energy source in the medium-term on the way to carbon neutrality. LNG is natural gas that liquefies as it deep-cools to -162 °C and thereby shrinks to 1/600 of its original gaseous volume. This enables the natural gas to be stored or transported over long distances by ship or lorry.

One main advantage of LNG is its high availability at competitive prices. But even more important are its incredible benefits when it comes to the environment. Compared to crude oil and coal, the harmful emissions generated during combustion of LNG are significantly lower. For this and many other reasons, LNG is becoming more and more attractive. Already in use to generate electricity, this energy source is also considered a future fuel source for ships, lorries and cars.

Since renewable energy sources are not yet available in sufficient quantities and at affordable prices, LNG is the interim solution on the way to clean, CO2-neutral energy. However, the extracted, liquefied natural gas is highly flammable. As a result, explosion protection must be guaranteed across the entire value creation chain. As a pioneering technology company with global explosion protection expertise, R. STAHL supports this sector with explosion-protected products and systems for all process steps from natural gas extraction to liquefaction and transport, all the way through to reconversion and supply.

MAXIMUM SECURITY THROUGHOUT THE LNG VALUE CHAIN

Among other constituent parts, LNG is made up of highly flammable methane, ethane, propane and nitrogen; it requires reliable explosion protection measures to be implemented throughout the entire value creation chain.
