Technical data

This European Standard gives guidelines for the design, construction and operation of all onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) installations including those for the liquefaction, storage, vaporisation, transfer and handling of LNG. This European Standard is valid for the following plant types:

– LNG export installations (plant), between the designated gas inlet boundary limit, and the ship manifold;

– LNG receiving installations (plant), between the ship manifold and the designated gas outlet boundary limit;

– peak-shaving plants, between designated gas inlet and outlet boundary limits.

A short description of each of these installations is given in Annex G. Satellite plants are excluded from this European Standard. Satellite plants with storage capacity of less than 200 t are covered by EN 13645. (Source: CEN website, see link above)
