This paper discusses complexities and challenges of managing boil off gas (BOG) in liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction plants. Most publications in the past have focused on regasification terminals and have not addressed the area of liquefaction plants. The paper discusses the generation and management of BOG and the associated networks and machinery to manage it. BOG options available for both Greenfield plants and in debottlenecking situations are covered. The advantages and disadvantages of different options and compressor systems are covered and the concept of dynamic simulation as an analysis tool is addressed.
