LNG Fueling for Transportation: The Next Generation of LNG Fueling Stations 971663
On the whole, the assessment criteria leading to the selection of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as an alternate fuel have been fairly well developed. However, the technology needs have not been adequately addressed in many instances resulting in demonstration projects less successful than anticipated. Because LNG technology is more complex than that of conventional fuels such as gasoline and diesel, and because LNG as a transportation fuel is in the early stages of implementation, the technology needs must be very carefully addressed. This paper presents an overview of the design issues considered important to LNG fueling in ground transportation.
