SOP, and the details in the definition don't save it, IMO. Once we've established that it's natural gas in liquid form, we can assume that it has been cooled and compressed, as any gas must be to assume the liquid state. It's often liquefied for transport, but that's not really part of the definition; it's LNG no matter what purpose it was made for. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:14, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

How about liquid gas that happens to be divided into liquefied petroleum gas and liquid natural gas? In some languages LPG is translated simply as "liquid gas". Keep. --Anatoli (обсудить) 02:30, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Keep - definition is correct. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:15, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

I think liquefied natural gas would be a technically more correct term because natural gas is a gas in the temperature and pressure range available in the Earth's atmosphere. Thus it needs to be deliberately liquefied in order to become LNG. This form is also about 20 times as common in Google as liquid natural gas. In BGC the difference is "only" 5 times in favor of liquefied. "Liquified" is about as common as "liquid" in both Google and BGC. If only one of LPG or LNG is "liquid" it should be LPG, because it liquefies easier, i.e. in lower pressure and higher temperature than LNG. I suggest we move the content to "liquefied natural gas" and make "liquid natural gas" and "liquified natural gas" alternative form pages. --Hekaheka (talk) 10:24, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Moved per Hekaheka. --Anatoli (обсудить) 23:49, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
liquid natural gas and liquefied natural gas kept. — Ungoliant (Falai) 04:00, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
