Risk glossary



The vaporisation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) after transport to its destination, in order to directly deliver natural gas to downstream markets. Regasification has traditionally been done by the LNG ships offloading their cargo as liquid into tanks at on-shore terminals, which then convert it to natural gas. However, technology now exists for regasification on board specially designed vessels, such as Energy Bridge LNG ships, to deliver natural gas directly into the pipelines. Similarly, dockside regasification can be done at specially equipped seaports such as at the GasPort now operational in the UK.
