Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is a transparent, odourless, non-toxic,cryogenic liquid that is produced when natural gas is cooled to -161ºC at atmospheric pressure. LNG is returned to natural gas vapour at the final point of consumption,where it is also odourised and metered before being supplied to the site’s gas distribution piping and used as a fuel source.
To meet peak gas market requirements over winter, AGL commenced construction of the $310 million Newcastle Gas Storage Facility (NGSF)in 2012. The NGSF will provide greater security of domestic gas supply in NSW and additional capacity to support the growing demand for natural gas as a replacement for LPG and diesel.
AGL's NGSF is the largest LNG facility in Australia servicing the domestic market. In July 2015 the NGSF will be ready to commence first LNG deliveries to make a cleaner, more cost-effective fuel available to Australian businesses for the long term.
