As the price of liquefied natural gas keeps rising, the case for a reliquefaction plant on board ship becomes more and more attractive and approaches economic feasibility. Using a shipboard reliquefaction plant can minimize the waste of LNG that is used in the cooling down procedure. This article describes both a zero loss LNG reliquefaction system, and a partial loss reliquefaction system. Elements of both systems are explained, and partial system advantages are given. Circuit control, the dual fuel engine and its control equipment, and the means for providing additional scavenging air are all described in the article.
