The paper highlights some considerations for the marine operations associated with on and offshore LNG terminals. Some principal concerns are voiced on the terminal layouts currently proposed and a case is built for Single Point Mooring (SPM) systems for 'ship to shore' transfer of LNG, in combination with subsea cryogenic pipelines. Such a system allows for a large separation between the LNG carrier, the storage tanks and the re-gas facilities. An SPM system is described that can accommodate non dedicated LNG carriers. It addresses the conceptual design and analysis work done and describes the model basin tests performed for an offshore LNG import terminal for the Gulf of Mexico. Moreover, the operational aspects, in specific the berthing and unloading of an LNG Carrier offshore to an SPM system are addressed. The paper also describes the design construction and installation of the subsea cryogenic pipelines.
