Message from Karim Chapot, Techical Director, GTT

Karim Chapot« The thermal performance of LNG cargo containment systems is one of the chief concerns in the LNG sector, as it has a direct impact on transport costs and CO2 emissions.

Technological advances have made it possible to continuously improve this performance over recent years, halving LNGC emissions in the space of a decade. Furthermore, there is a strong correlation between thermal performance, vessel power usage, emissions and the efficiency of the containment system.

The desire for ever-better performance has had a real impact on the guarantees given by all stakeholders. Considering the importance of this topic, we wanted to clarify the challenges that these guarantees pose, and offer the reader some food for thought. »

Boil-off clarifications

The purpose of this article is to clarify Boil-Off Gas (BOG) and GTT guaranteed Boil-Off Rate (BOR).
The Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) is a cryogenic liquid mixture composed of methane, ethane, some heavier hydrocarbons and nitrogen. The main parameters that dictate the the behavior of LNG are the composition of the cargo, its temperature, its gas pressure, its liquid gas ratio and accelerations.
