LNG Energy Content

Energy Content of LNG - Energy Density of LNGThe energy content of LNG ranges from 24 MJ/L to 21 MJ/L. The energy density of LNG is roughly 0.41 kg/L to 0.5 kg/L, depending mostly on temperature and pressure. The energy density of LNG is 2.4 times greater than CNG. This makes it economical to transport. The energy content of LNG is comparable to propane.
