TECHNOLOGY AND ECONOMICS OF TRANSPORTING AND STORING LNG
An overview presents the technology involved in the various phases of LNG transportation from well head to user. The economic cost of each step in the process is presented to show why decisions are made. The impending energy crisis with natural gas in short supply requires trade-offs in cost considerations. This is further unbalanced by the newness of LNG transportation into many areas and environmental considerations concerning its handling and storage.
