This paper will first review the existing lNG transfer ship/shore systems and the typical cost of these facilities. Significant novel ideas to reduce the cost of the transfer facilities will be reviewed. A new design of marine terminal, currently undertaken by a group of French companies set up by Gaz de France and TotalFinaElf, will be unveiled:
- the transfer lines on a costly trestle are replaced by new cryogenic subsea pipes developed by ITP interpipe applying patented technology from hp/ht sea line
- a new concept of loading platform and transfer system, linking submerged line to LNG carrier is developed by Eurodim, taking advantage, inter alia, of the emergence on the market of reliable cryogenic flexible lines as an alternative to conventional loading arms.

Operational and safety aspects of the new systems will be developed and typical cost elements established. Finally, the proposed plans for full validation of the novel LNG transfer facilities will be presented.

Paper Delivered by:
Bernard Dupont (Eurodim)
Michael Offredi (ITP)
Emmanuel Flesch (Gaz de France)
Chris Thomas (TotalFinaElf)
