Abstract

Liquefaction of natural gas in large scale production facilities has become an accepted, competitive method for supplying fuel to energy-short areas within the past ten years. To reach attractive laid-down cost levels, the gas must be liquefied, shipped, and stored on a vast scale requiring investments of several hundred million dollars.
