The aim of this study was to develop a new method for determining nominal values for sloshing loads in the design of storage tanks in LNG FPSO (liquid natural gas, floating production, storage and offloading units). Details of the procedure are presented in a flow chart showing the key sub-tasks. The applicability of the method is demonstrated using an example of a hypothetical LNG FPSO operating in a natural gas site off a hypothetical oceanic region. It is concluded that the developed method is useful for determining the design sloshing loads of storage tanks in ship-shaped offshore LNG installations in combination with virtual metocean data and operational conditions.
