The capital-intensive financing and labor-intensive construction aspects of LNG export-import system elements can be seen in terms of known costs and expenses for existing systems as well as from reported estimates of capital costs, operating costs, and unit cost-of-service for even larger systems now in planning or consideration stages. System cost curves show anticipated economies of size and the diminishing effect of the unique cost aspects of specific systems as size approaches the 1 billion cu ft per day level. Planning approaches a minimum five-year lead time and budgets reach $1.5 billion for realization of these larger systems.
