    Onboard Procedures for Loading Gas Cargo
     
    • --- LNG is liquefied natural gas, which is the very cold liquid form of natural gas.LNG carriers are generally specialised ships transporting LNG at its atmospheric pressure boiling point of approximately -162 degree C, depending on the cargo grade.LNG carriers were typically in the range 80-135,000 m3 up until 2006.


  • Onboard Procedures for Un-loading Gas Cargo
    • --- Liquid is pumped ashore by use of two submerged pumps installed at the bottom of each tank. In the process, the cargo tank pressure shows a decreasing tendency as the LNG level drops in the tank, resulting from the discharge of LNG. Conversely, shore tank pressure shows an increasing tendency with the receipt of LNG.
