The Electric LNG Option For The U.S.

GE explains electric motor-driven compression technology


Published:

The U.S. has seen a startling reversal of its energy fortunes over the last five years: the combination of a shale gas boom, good electrical infrastructure as well as ongoing concerns about CO2 emissions have been driving the development of eLNG (electric liquefied natural gas).
