California orders first liquefied natural gas delivery from the country’s largest liquefaction plant

The state ordered its first liquified natural gas deliveries from the Republic of Korea’s largest natural gas liquefactory on Wednesday, the state’s liquefying company said.

Statewide, a single liquefier will take up to 3 million cubic feet of LNG per day, according to a statement.

The order is part of a broader effort by South Korea to reduce its dependence on Russia for the countrys primary energy.

The Republic of Korean liquefiers export liquefried natural gas, or LNG, to Russia for use in its energy grid, which is used to power plants, railroads and other critical infrastructure.
