SPECIAL CONSIDERATION ON THE DESIGN OF AN LNG HARBOR
LNG harbors require expensive structures established as close as possible to the liquefaction plant (while crude tankers may be served by relatively much cheaper, single point mooring servers in deeper water). The cost of waiting time for the very expensive LNG ships has to be weighted against the cost of the additional berths and structures. Results of a study in which the optimum solution has been obtained by comparing these costs are given. Tables and graphs illustrate analysis.
