LNG Tank

LNG Tank

LNG Tank

Please advise design code for LNG. Inner and outer tank? How to calculate shell/roof/bottom thk? Isolation type?

RE: LNG Tank

You may look to the following codes :

General specification and design of storage tank , API 620 Tank Systems for Refrigerated Liquefied Gas Storage.

R.C. bund wall and containment :ACI 376 Code Requirements for Design and Construction of Concrete Structures
for Containment of Refrigerated Liquefied Gases and Commentary.

In case of seismic zone ,: ASCE 7-16.

RE: LNG Tank

Add to the above API-625 and ASME codes.
Detailed design would normally be by the contractors building the tanks- not a good starter tank for learning.

RE: LNG Tank

Thanks for all comments and advice.
I have some experience for API 650 tank design but my new project will involve with LNG tank which new to me so i what to start learning for new thing.

RE: LNG Tank

Add NFPA 59A to the list. And a star for MJCronin.

How did a company without LNG tank experience get a contract for designing LNG tankage? There are only a few companies that I would consider for design and they all have a wealth of experience.

RE: LNG Tank

We are witnessing the last days of engineering and an oncoming plague of M.B.A. destruction.....
