The natural gas are there in the rock reservoirs deep below the surface of the Earth and therefore under high pressure. They can exist being dissolved in the water or hydrocarbons, or in the free state. Same is the way they are produced from the geological formations. There are three quantities of the gases, namely their temperature, pressure and temperatures, and three major rules governing their behavior, i.e. Charles’ Law, Boyle’s Law, and Gay-Lussac’s Law.
The liquid natural gas trade chain starts with the exploration and production, treatment and liquefaction process, followed by its transportation, and concluded with the storage at final location and regasification. This compact document provides all information that everyone involved in maritime transportation of the LNG should be aware of in order to perform his or her duties in a safe manner.
To do that, they are definitely in need of having a good knowledge of the nature of gases and their technical characteristics, since the failure to know and understand same will eventually result in the unsafe working practice on board, leading to the dangerous and often even catastrophic consequences to the humans on board, vessel and the environment.
