    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides requirements for the design, construction and operation of installations for the storage and handling of liquefied natural gas (LNG). It addresses major installations of atmospheric-type tanks for supplying marine tanker terminals and pipeline peak saving. It also covers pressure tanks, usually part of a land transport distribution system. The Standard does not cover transport or pipelines outside the storage installation.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    ScopeThis Standard specifies requirements for the design, construction and operation of installations for the storage and handling of liquefied natural gas (LNG). ApplicationThis Standard applies to two basic types of installation, being - installations of atmospheric tanks for supplying marine tanker terminals, pipeline peaking, and the like; and pressure tanks, which are usually a part of a distribution system for LNG by road tanker.Where this Standard does not applyThis Standard does not apply to or deal with - the functional design of liquefaction equipment;frozen-ground storage techniques;aspects of natural gas distribution and use that are covered by other Standards and publications such as pipeline and reticulation codes, appliance and vehicle installation codes, and the like;any transport operations that are covered by the ADG Code; the transport of LNG by ship; orany aspect of transport or piped distribution outside the perimeter of the static storage installation.
