Abstract

This review describes the current liquefaction systems on ships for natural gas transportation in liquid form (Liquefied Natural Gas – LNG). Since in the construction of a gas carrier an essential requirement is the selection of a liquefaction system, this paper describes the principles of operation, thermal and technological processes, as well as the advantages of each system.

Keywords
