LNG is an energy source that has much lower air emissions than other fossil fuels, such as oil or coal. Liquefied natural gas or LNG is natural gas (predominantly methane, CH4) that has been converted to liquid form for ease of storage or transport. The conversion takes place when natural gas is cooled to around -160 degrees C, shrinking its volume to about 1/600th of its original state.

What is Oil trading?
Trading means doing business. The term petroleum trading describes the financial operations associated with commerce in hydrocarbon cargoes. All the major oil companies have trading subsidiaries. Their main objective is to ensure a regular supply of crude oil to their refineries, to meet the oil supply demands of the processing plant at any one time.
So, the trader buys crude to supply a refinery that is going to transform it into petroleum products required by the consumer. Between the date of purchase of the crude and delivery to the consumer of the refinery production from this cargo, several months could have elapsed. And during that period, the crude price could have varied: if it has increased, there is no problem. But if it has gone down, the selling price of the refinery products has also dropped: result, the trader has lost money on the refinery products manufactured from an expensive crude and sold cheaply as a result of a drop in oil prices. To provide protection against this risk, a financial mechanism exists, called “covering”. This operation takes place on a special market called the futures market. The trading operation can generate significant profits. That is the reason for the existence of trading companies independent of the petroleum industry and whose aims are solely financial. These companies operate a little on the spot markets, but above all on the futures markets.
