Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is transported by ships to unloading points on the LNG terminals, where the LNG is transported by above-ground superinsulated pipelines to storage tanks. Storage tanks are located a few hundred meters to several kilometers away from the unloading point. The article shows the changes in the basic thermodynamic parameters of liquefied natural gas during the flow in the pipeline modeled for an exemplary unloading process for different variants using Peng-Robinson equation of state.
