In broad terms, the organization of a project involves four distinct stages; these are--the preliminary review; establishing the feasibility and obtaining government approvals; the economic analysis (including the transport element), and the implementation and construction. This article is only concerned with the marine transport part of stage 3 (the economic analysis), i.e. establishing the optimum combination of variables in terms of numbers of LNGCs, the capacity of each carrier and the service speed which together will yield the minimum delivered LNG cost. A simulation of the entire project also forms a basic part of the analysis of a project's feasibility, using a computer model of the trade.
