New Standard for Custody Transfer Systems for LNG Carriers

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/1/2005, Location: Europe

The next-generation Foxboro custody transfer system (CTS) for LNG carriers has been certified by NKKK (Nippon Kaiji Kentei Kyokai) of Japan, the world-leading survey organization in the area of custody transfer measurements for liquefied natural gas (LNG).

The state-of-the-art Foxboro Custody Transfer System Reference V for LNG carriers is based on an innovative new non-contact pulsed laser technology that combines the well-proven accuracy of traditional capacitive-based systems with the lower total cost of ownership of non-intrusive radar-based level measurement systems. This new system leverages Foxboro’s 40 years of experience in marine CTS applications, plus innovative pulsed semiconductor laser technology, to provide this breakthrough LNG custody transfer solution.

The Foxboro non-contact, pulsed laser CTS provides the high accuracy measurements and data logging of levels, temperatures, and pressures required for the calculation of total LNG cargo loaded or discharged. The data is then converted to volumetric measurement. The system offers the following advantages and user benefits over conventional capacitance- or radar-based systems:

Superior measurement accuracy for increased confidence in critical custody transfer applications
Easy external access to all level measurement components for inspection or repair, eliminating the need to ever enter the LNG compartment itself
High-resolution, non-contact, pulsed laser technology eliminates the need for complicated and costly in-tank wave guides
Fully industrial components in high-availability redundant configurations ensure many years of trouble-free operation in demanding marine environments
State-of-the-art Windows XP user interface with comprehensive monitoring, logging, alarming, and reporting functionality provides easy-to-use operator interface and simplified interfacing to other shipboard subsystems
Functionally independent alarm system provides for enhanced safety and security
