The history of the LNG carrier goes back to mid 1950s. The basic concept of membrane system was developed in 1954 and the stainless steel membrane was developed by Technigaz in 1960. Pythagore, the first experimental ship of 630 m3 cargo volume constructed in 1964, was equipped with 1 mm thickness stainless steel and PVC—foam insulation panel. The first methane carrier, Descartes, was built in 1971. Her cargo tank volume was 50,000 m3, and insulation system was made of 1.2 mm thickness stainless steel and balsa wood. In proportion to the increase of cargo tank size, the superior cargo containment system has been developed from Mark-I system to Mark-III system. Mostepha Ben Boulaid of 125,260 m3 cargo volume was built using the Mark-I system in 1976, and Aman Bintulu of 18,900 m3 cargo volume was constructed using the Mark-III system in 1993. Finally, SHI constructed 'SK Supreme' of 138,000 m3 cargo volume in December 1999.
