LNG sampling at low pressure paper

ASaP and GGS Oil & Gas at work for the world’s largest FSRU

Together with our Belgian partner GGS Oil & Gas Systems (GGS) ASaP executed an order for two Phazers (LNG probe-vaporizers) and one common intermittent LNG sampler. The Phazer is developed for direct insertion into the LNG transfer line. The Phazers and LNG sampler will be installed on the world’s largest FSRU which will be moored in Turkey.

LNG sampling at low pressure StS LNG transfer in progress

LNG sampling at low pressure paper

A typical LNG mixture start to boil at -260°F (-162°C) at atmospheric pressure. For an application like LNG sampling at low pressure with Ship-to-Ship (StS) transfers, the typical pressures in the cross over manifolds are below 1 barg. This means that the LNG nearly start to reach its boiling point prior entering the sample probe.
