Fugitive Emissions in Liquefied Natural Gas Transmission, Storage, and Distribution

Eliminating fugitive methane emissions and reducing the cost of LNG storage and distribution improve the environmental impact and increases savings. This project creates validated modelling tools to optimize equipment designs, simplify transfer protocols and propose emissions management strategies. The project also evaluates technologies for boil-off gas management including micro liquefaction.
