LNG for vehicles is a hot topic in North America today. A number of projects are announced or considered to convert natural gas to LNG for a variety of transportation applications from autos and trucks to marine applications. While the US is still in the very early phases of development, China has been developing LNG projects steadily for more than a decade.
These plants supply distributed LNG applications such as factories, businesses and residences as well as making LNG available for the transportation industry. Recently, many of the plants are being constructed solely for vehicle fuel applications. By 2015, China is projected to have 1.5 MM natural gas vehicles on the road.
