Romanian energy company OMV Petrom has completed the first delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Damen Shipyards Mangalia, where it was used to fuel a ship equipped with LNG engines, the first of this type to be built in Romania, reported the Offshore-energy.biz.
The complex process of OMV Petrom's first LNG delivery in Romania also involved several partner companies and included two separate transports of two tankers each, which fueled the tank of the first LNG operated ship in Romania.
The volume of natural gas is reduced approximately 600 times through liquefaction and by cooling it at -162°C compared to the gaseous state. As a result, LNG can be safely stored with higher energy efficiency and transported over very long distances.
