LOADING AND UNLOADING LNG CARRIERS VIA AN OFFSHORE TERMINAL AND SUBMARINE CRYOGENIC PIPELINES

The system, which would permit the offshore loading of LNG-carriers in an area where access and sea-bottom conditions make the construction of a coastal loading station very expensive, includes two main parts: A) A mooring system, including essentially an anular buoy and a rigid column erected from the sea-bottom, and B) Connection between carriers and onshore facilities (storage) including LNG-sea-lines and connection devices (articulated arms, swivel joints etc). All connections and articulations are operated above the water surface and consists of the well-known cryogenic loading arms. Order from NSFI as No. 18572.
