GIINGL releases LNG custody transfer handbook

The International Group of Liquefied Natural Gas Importers (GIIGNL) has issued the fourth edition of the “GIIGNL LNG Custody Transfer Handbook”.

This document gives descriptions of the measurement methods and equipment used by the LNG Industry and recommended practice for the methodology to be specified in LNG sales and purchase agreements,” GIIGNL said.

According to GIIGNL, this fourth edition should be seen as a revision of the previous version including not only custody transfer from a large scale LNG ship to an onshore terminal (or vice versa), but also containing a lot more useful information with regard to ship-­to­-ship LNG transfer and custody transfer from an onshore terminal to small LNG carriers.

However it is not specifically intended to work out procedures for overland LNG custody transfer operations involving LNG trucks, containers or trains, or for small-scale LNG transfer such as bunkering or refuelling of ships and trucks, France-based organisation added.
