In recent years, the changing patterns of the liquefied gas market from a long term charter market to a contract of affreightment and spot market has created an additional challenge for the engineering companies that are involved in the design and construction of cargo handling plants for liquefied gas tankers. Cargo changing has become a day to day operation which has to be performed frequently by the crew. In addition, the fulfilment of tanker presentation and product specifications have become more demanding. The increasing need to shorten port time, thus requiring fast loading, unloading and cargo changing operations, has resulted in a new generation of gas tankers in recent years. LGI takes pride in having delivered a major part of the gas plants, including the cargo tanks, complete cargo handling systems and systems for reliable production of industrial nitrogen for cargo changing purposes.

This paper focusses on the basic requirements for nitrogen production systems onboard liquefied gas tankers; it summarises the main different nitrogen generation possibilities, and describes the system chosen and implemented by LGI on a number of gas tankers. It also gives some comments on operational experience with this system.
