Boil-off Gas / Vapour
rating: 0+x
  • Refers to the gases generated during the storage of volatile liquefied gases, such as LNG.
  • LNG boils at slightly above –160°C at atmospheric pressure and is loaded, transported and discharged at this temperature, which requires special materials, insulation and handling equipment to deal with the low-temperature and the boil-off vapour (heat leakage keeps the cargo surface constantly boiling).
