Adaptation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the quality requirements for natural gas transportation pipeline system is a high energy intensive process. The energy for this process can be obtained include from waste heat in the industry processes, steam power blocks or sea water in LNG unloading terminal. Another way of obtaining the heat is burning of gas or other fuels. A large temperature difference between the heat sources in each of these cases, and the low temperature of LNG can be used to control of the pumping engine operation, it can provide optimization and reduction of the costs. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) can be used as a source of cold to the increasing power of the cogeneration process. The article examines some practical cogeneration solutions (combined heat and called power - CHP), which can improve the efficiency of the process of regasification of LNG.
