The system was specially designed for adverse weather and sea conditions. Components of the system (submarine LNG-pipeline, submerged flexible LNG-hose and mooring buoy, low temperature swivel- and rigid joints) are described together with the various problems of subsea positioning and installation. Particular attention was given to the problems of the cryogenic Liquid (boil off, flash gases), pipe insulation and the weight coating in order to control the buoyancy. Order from NSFI as No. 14966.
