LNG distribution through virtual pipelines
A liquefied natural gas virtual system, or LNG virtual distribution grid, is one of the solutions used to supply gas to populations in places where it is not possible to build regasification terminals.
It consists of a small or medium-scale liquefaction plant, a fleet of cryogenic transport tanks, mobile regasification units and satellite regasification stations (SRSs) located in strategic points. This means the fleet of transport tanks can connect the liquefaction plant with the SRSs, where the LNG is regasified and introduced into the network of distribution pipelines to reach people's homes.
