In order to optimise the return on the huge capital cost of an LNG carrier, and to take into account the rules and regulations pertaining to the transportation of LNG cargoes, shipboard reliquefaction systems are being rapidly developed to be incorporated with the cargo installations of LNG carriers. This article describes two different types of shipboard reliquefaction systems for LNG carriers, one with nitrogen separation, and the other without. Advantages of using either of these reliquefaction systems are given, and economic considerations are also discussed.
