A NEW LNG ALTERNATIVE: THE 'FLOATING LNG RECEIVING TERMINAL' CONCEPT

The use of out-of-service crude oil tankers as floating oil storage facilities is well accepted. The authors propose that surplus- tonnage methane tankers, taken out of service in the early 1980s and available at extraordinarily low prices, be put to similar use for LNG storage. They present a synthesis of the aspects involved, as jointly studied by four companies: Sofregaz, Gaz de France, Gaz Transport and Total CFP. A number of drawings are presented to clarify the implementation of the concept.
