DESIGN AND EXPERIMENTS OF OFFSHORE LNG PLANT USING PRESTRESSED CONCRETE STRUCTURES

This report summarizes a feasibility study of offshore LNG processing and storage plant using prestressed concrete structures and experiments to solve the technical problem raised in the study. The plant consists of two gravity installed cylindrical LNG storage tanks each having a storage capacity of 75,000 cu m and a LNG process plant barge of column supported gravity type with processing capacity of 1.25 million tons per year. The experiments consist of the tests to confirm the property of the prestressed concrete at low temperatures for the LNG containment system and the tests to investigate the thermal effect on constrained concrete structure by using cylindrical model tanks with 3 m diameters. The studies concluded that the the LNG processing and storage plant using prestressed concrete will be feasible from both technical and economical point of view.
