This European Standard gives general guidelines for the design of liquefied natural gas (LNG) transfer systems intended for use on offshore transfer facilities or on coastal weather exposed transfer facilities. The transfer facilities considered may be between floating units, or between floating and fixed units. The specific component details of the LNG transfer systems are not covered by this European Standard. Reference is made to EN 1474-1 and EN 1474-2 where appropriate. As a general statement the present standard applies to all transfer systems given in the scope. However, some transfer system designs may require a deviation from the full standard as described in normative Annex A.
