The largest LNG tankers presently in operation are the SS POLAR ALASKA and SS ARCTIC TOKYO, of 71,500 cubic meters capacity each, operating between Alaska and Japan since 1969. Three 125,000-cu m ships were ordered in 1970 by El Paso Natural Gas from Chantiers France--Dunkerque; they are intended to carry LNG between Algeria and the East Coast of the United States. Right now 160,000-cu m and even 200,000-cu m LNG tankers are under consideration.
