AbstractNatural gas, a sector having strong growth and market potentials which has experienced significant developments over the last years, is a energy carrier of agreed universal importance for the implementation (on the short and medium term) of a real energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources.
ENGIE, the second largest natural gas buyer in Europe, currently uses two major natural gas supply routes to its consumer markets: as a gas by means of pipelines (for distances < 3000 km), as Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) using LNG vessels (for long transport distances or to connect isolated production areas).
The Ph.D. thesis is organized in the context of a research program between the Centre of Thermodynamics of Processes (CTP) of MINES ParisTech/Armines (France) and Engie and aims at evaluating and modeling the behavior of small-scale LNG storage tanks.
