View of the tanks and piping of a ship carrying liquefied natural gas (LNG). Natural gas is usually found in association with petroleum oil reserves. For transportation, the gas is usually liquefied by cooling, one cubic metre of LNG yielding 600 cubic metres of gas at 0 Celsius. LNG is thus able to be stored relatively easily to provide a reserve for domestic use. This LNG tanker is the "Khannur", and was built in Norway. It has a capacity of 125,000 cubic metres in its heavilly-insulated tanks.
