This report covers in some detail most of the major areas of consideration involved in the marine carriage of LNG. Some of the fields investigated and reviewed are the world's total energy picture and the particular requirements of natural gas in the United States in the near future. An account of all the past LNG ventures is detailed followed by both the present and proposed projects designed for the delivery of gas to the world markets. In view of the chemical as well as the physical properties of LNG, a systems approach has been utilized. The areas that have been given the most attention include: materials of construction, terminals, cargo operations and equipment, propulsion modifications, costings, tank systems, and the safety and regulatory aspects of LNG in a marine environment.
