The reports on the development of cryogenic floating flexible pipelines for liquefied natural gas (LNG) transfer operations. The possibility of a marine terminal for LNG transfer opens new scenarios for the industry at both the liquefaction and re-gasification ends of the chain. The transfer facilities can be located outside the usual port or river facilities and linked to the coast using long-length, cryogenic pipe-in-pipes. Alternatively, for isolated gas fields with on-site liquefaction facilities, the floating flexibles could be used to connect the FPSO to the mid-ship manifolds of the LNG carriers.
