Natural Gas Transport


Gas is moved primarily by pipeline. The gas transport system is therefore mostly on land, with collection systems, continent crossing pipelines, and local distribution systems. Much of our gas comes from Texas, Louisiana and Canada. Storage, in tanks and underground in old gas wells, is an important part of the transport network. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquid gas products such as propane are moved by ship, barge, truck, rail and pipeline.
