The transportation of LNG (liquefied natural gas) through long burled pipelines is technically feasible with modern materials and engineering techniques. With multiple pumping stations and reliquefaction plants, vaporization can be avoided in a transfer system and the single-phase flow calculations can easily be made for the subcooled liquid.
