From a process standpoint the concept of an LNG receiving terminal is very simple. The main functions are to unload LNG from a ship, store it in LNG tanks and then vaporise it for delivery to a natural gas pipeline. However, the actual successful achievement of these three process functions requires a higher degree of design complexity than it may at first appear.

The major difficulty in the technical design arises from two basic factors that are common to all LNG terminals. First, LNG is handled at 260° F below zero so cryogenic design considerations must be taken into account. Second, since very large volumes of flammable LNG are handled in a terminal, additional factors must be considered in the cryogenic design to ensure that at the terminal is as safe and as reliable as possible.
