How it works

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is transferred from the LNG tanker to large, heavily insulated storage tanks using cryogenic transfer pumps.

The LNG boil-off gas that is formed during transfer and storage is recovered by suitable boil-off-gas compressors and reliquefied.

The LNG is pumped at pipeline pressure by high pressure multistage cryogenic pumps and re-gasified by heating it with seawater using heat exchangers called open rack vaporizers
