This paper outlines an investigation into the use of LNG tankers with icebreaking capabilities in Canadian Arctic waters to move isolated reserves of natural gas that are of insufficient volume to support construction of a pipeline. It includes a summary of special considerations involved in the construction of a gathering system, LNG plant, loading facility, the design of LNG carriers, as well as unloading and gasification facilities.
