Marine terminals for liquefied natural gas, ethylene, and liquefied petroleum gas served by ocean-going vessels are the general subjects of this paper. Terminals served exclusively by inland, canal, or river-going barges will be briefly discussed. For at least 15 years refrigerated shipment of liquids of up to 3000 tons per barge have been common. However, during the last 10 years ships designed to carry 10,000 to 70,000 tons of refrigerated liquids have been built and placed in service. Terminals serving these ships are unique in many ways.
