Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
can we have a quick discussion by Those Who Know, of the relationship between LNG, LPG, propane, and other petro gas nomenclature?  how many gaseous byproducts of petro distillation or extraction are compressed and used in liquid form?  the "flows like a liquid and can go Bang" risks being discussed here sound a lot like propane.

also, has anyone a reading on the amount of energy used to compress these gases into their liquid state for storage and transport?  how many BTU does it take to compress 1000 BTU of any of these liquid gases into their commercially usable form?  just curious about the EROEI as usual...

as to the EROEI, I'd say from rough memory that you get on the other side (i.e. after liquifeaction, transport and regasification) 90%+ of the natural gas you put in, so it's not too bad as a transport chain.
