    ABS unveils guidance notes for offshore terminals

    News // May 13, 2002
    ABS launched its "Guidance Notes for Building and Classing Offshore LNG Terminals" at this year's annual Offshore Technology Conference.

    The Guidance Notes provide industry with a comprehensive document outlining ABS procedures for LNG classification and cross-references ABS and other relevant industry documents for building LNG terminals.

    "Although industry has successfully dealt with oil and gas processing facilities on Floating Production Storage Units for a number of years, the liquefaction and cryogenic storage of LNG offshore is a whole new arena. This transition requires a comprehensive approach toward design and review of all the elements and criteria involved in an offshore LNG terminal," said William J. Sember, ABS Vice President of Offshore Development.
