LNG/LPG 2018 Conference

The movement of liquefied gas by sea has been well established. LNG accounts for a significant part of the growth in the global energy supply and despite the recent economic situation the future demand for LNG/LPG carriers, floating storage, and processing systems is expected to increase.

While some companies are building larger, or faster vessels to take advantage of economies of scale, others are looking at developing small vessels for shortsea and coastal trades to help create LNG distribution networks. There is also a growing interest in floating production, storage and offloading systems for offshore field development and re-gasification systems and plants designed to avoid the need to construct land based processing and distribution centres.


RINA invites technical papers on the following topics:

• Design of larger capacity carriers,
• Design of shortsea and coastal carriers,
• Design for greater flexibility to cater for spot market trading,
• Novel trading routes: Arctic and beyond
• Floating storage, re-gasification and processing,
• Optimisation of power plants
• Issues associated with partial filled tanks
• Reliquefaction
• Ship to ship transfer systems
• Conversions

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit their paper for publication in the International Journal of Maritime Engineering.
