The utilisation of natural gas as a source of energy is gaining popularity. Every year, new reserves are discovered, and there is now considerably more gas being discovered than is being consumed globally. Moreover, new sources are discovered about four times as much gas as it is consumed for every year. However, much of the world's gas reserves are spread out far from major consumption centres. As a result, gas transportation and storage are required. Liquifying the gas at cryogenic temperatures reduces its volume by more than 600 times, making storage and transportation much easier. In this study, thermal analyses were made on the LNG tank on a marine ship (TSR 18009) named “SELVÅG SENIOR” being constructed by SU Ship Design A.Ş. The analyses have been performed as transient-state and the results are projected for 5-day and 10-day time intervals.
