Editor's Comment

Driving LNG supply and demand Alex Field, the EIC, UK, discusses the changing pattern of LNG demand in North and South America.

Faster insulation
Oliver Hills, Pittsburgh Corning, UK, explains how pre-insulation can cut down installation times onsite.

Colder...longer, optimising insulation performance
Anatoli Kogan and John Minnick, Lydall Performance Materials; and James Fesmire and Wesley Johnson, NASA Kennedy Space Center, USA, discuss more efficient methods of insulating cryogenic systems.

Keeping your distance
Bibek Das, ABS, USA, examines the design measures for FLNG projects to minimise risk.

Half full or half empty
Hans Westerlind, Emerson Process Management, Sweden, discusses how tank gauging innovations can improve LNG terminal efficiency and safety.

Safety first
Dirk Nous, Fluxys, Belgium, explains the necessity of focusing on safety and risk analysis when developing LNG infrastructure, large or small.

Liberating LNG
Karen Sund and Dragos Talvescu, Sund Energy, Norway, outline some of the drivers of small scale LNG and how new technology is making LNG an enabler to develop gas resources.

Cleaner shipping
Elien Van Houwenhove, Cryonorm Systems, the Netherlands, explains the latest technology available to make inland LNG shipping possible.

Decision makers
Steve Hemsley, Lanner, UK, describes the benefits of using business simulation programmes to develop large scale LNG projects.

Reducing risk
J.H.J. Smits and V. de Gast, Systems Navigator, the Netherlands, discuss how to minimise risk in decision making throughout the lifecycle of an LNG terminal.

Keep it clean
Torben Rasmussen, Hempel A/S, Denmark, examines the relative merit of foul release coatings.

Energy efficient
Guus Bertels, Bronswerk Heat Transfer, the Netherlands, presents three options for air-driven heat exchangers.

Project overview
As we head into 2013, LNG Industry provides an update on a small selection of current and future projects from around the world.
