Import terminal – Facility that has the capability of accepting and storing LNG from overseas.  There are currently five terminals operating in the United States and one in Puerto Rico. 

Liquefaction – The process of cooling natural gas to -260° F until it becomes a liquid, i.e. liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Liquefaction plant – Facility that has the capability of cooling natural gas to form LNG.  This is also called an LNG export facility.

Peak-shaving facilities – Facilities at which LNG is stored during periods of low natural gas demand.  When it is needed, it is warmed back to gas and shipped to end users. 

Regasification – The process of warming (LNG) until it returns to its gaseous state.
