A new design of lng gbs import terminal

Paul Boughton

The design aims to reduce the cost and the delivery time, by dividing the fabrication of the GBS into two main parts:
o The concrete structure provides a sheltered quay for berthing and offloading the LNG carriers. This U-shape concrete structure is simple to build, as it has no specific LNG requirements and can thus be built locally without difficulty.
o The tank structure, composed of membrane-type tanks, supports the regassification facilities, utilities, living quarters and can be built and precommissioned in a shipyard familiar with the building of LNG carriers.
