    Natural gas normally accompanies crude oil in oil and gas reservoirs. Earlier, there was no way of tapping the natural gas stream that was produced during crude oil extraction (onshore or offshore). Any such gas was flared off. However, with the advent of advanced technologies and commercialization of natural gas, it started getting stored and supplied to gas stations. One issue faced by the oil and gas industry was the transportation of gas. Eventually, liquefaction of gas became the norm of......
