Analysis Points To Pipe Alloy For Safe And More Economical LNG Transport

Access to natural gas will be a vital part of the world’s energy strategy in the years to come. Because the regions of greatest new supplies are distant from sources, demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) is forecast to more than double by 2020 compared to an increase of only 2-3% in overall gas demand for the same period (Wood Mackenzie LNG Tool 2008). LNG technology provides the means to transport large volumes of gas around the world in liquid form thus bridging the transportation gap. Conveying LNG from plant to transportation vessel and back again requires a pipeline along which the liquid gas flows. LNG pipelines must be kept below circa minus 160oC, thus introduci
