Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 15)


This study is part of a broad program of fundamental research into liquefied natural gas presently under way at the University of Calgary. This paper outlines some of the design considerations for medium- and long-distance transportation of LNG by an insulated pipeline. The particular application of such a pipeline would be the recovery of natural gas from northern Canada.
