There are a number of existing LNG vessels that are expected to be available for future use. Such use will depend on Projects taking advantage of them in the many opportunities that are now developing in the LNG trades. The savings that can be achieved by using existing vessels rather than new buildings is in the order of $20 million per vessel per year. To allow such advantage to be taken, existing vessels have to demonstrate that they are capable of meeting the challenge of further long term employment in the same way as new buildings.

The purpose of this paper is to highlight the reasons why they are capable of meeting this challenge, and how new projects can confidently take advantage of the substantial benefits of using existing vessels.
