This paper begins to address the problem of sloshing in membrane LNG tanks. It summarises the methodology by which permissible tank filling ranges are established for new designs of membrane LNG ships. It also provides guidance on mitigating actions to take if a ship has to depart a terminal with the tanks partially filled, and describes the type of risk assessment

recommended for ships trading to exposed terminals. It describes the type of damage to look for in tanks which have been exposed to conditions which may have caused high sloshing pressures, and suggests methods for onboard monitoring of sloshing activity.
