What is Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and How Is It Becoming an Energy Source for the United States?

The United States imports about 16% of the natural gas we consume. Most of these imports are delivered by pipeline (from Canada). But a growing volume of natural gas is coming to the United States in liquid form from overseas. With the demand for natural gas expected to increase, it’s likely that U.S. imports of LNG also will need to increase.
