ENAGAS Regasification Terminal LNG Storage Tank

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS 

  • Preload worked with contractor Auxini as a joint venture to successfully meet this challenge. The group proposed a unique double-wall storage facility that incorporated several innovative features. 
  • These included: 
    • a tank design with both primary and secondary walls made of prestressed concrete, 
    • an insulation deck suspended from the roof to form the ceiling of the inner tank, 
    • and a 24” diameter gas withdrawal line uniquely designed for the purpose of reducing boil-off. 
  • The tanks were also specified to withstand cold shock that can occur from LNG coming in contact with the tank’s outer surfaces, and thermal radiation flux caused by a fire lasting up to 5 hours.
