The next generation of LNG plants will be characterized by lower costs and higher efficiencies without sacrifying safety. New equipment and use of computers to monitor and control plant operating and maintenance functions and to instruct operators will also contribute to a reduction in cost and specific power requirements. Additional improvements in design, manufacturing and construction are expected to include new precooling systems, combined cycles with gas turbines to improve plant efficiency, improved insulation systems, improved cryogenic valve design, multifunctional equipment, increased use of 3-D computer-aided design, new LNG storage concepts.
