Lng tanks paper_by_dilip_patel

Download to read offline

Costs associated with the construction of LNG tanks can be typically up to 45% of the total project cost of a typical 4 MTPA terminal. This makes it essential that only necessary and justifiable requirements are specified for the storage tanks. Even a small % increase in the tank and the associated system cost would require additional funding in millions of dollars. Equally, the risks imposed to the community, environment and the owner’s capital investment whilst storing very large volume of LNG must be minimised to levels acceptable to the authorities. This paper examines the requirements of standards and codes for the LNG storage tanks, major design, safety and testing issues for the tanks and management of the risks associated with the LNG storage tanks. Discussion in this paper is limited to the above ground tanks, as these are more economical to construct when compared to in-pit or in-ground tanks.
