Method for Determining Location of FSRU Terminal

ABSTRACT: The article concerns the process of determining the safe location of the FSRU (floating storage regasification unit) terminal. The article introduces the process of analysis both in the context of navigation and manoeuvrability, as well as the process of analysing the movement of the ship's hull at the quay in order to determine the operability criteria of the terminal. The article indicates that in order to determine, a safe location for the FSRU terminal in the context of gas storage and regasification, many aspects should be analysed, in terms of weather, safe navigation, environmental and security conditions especially in present military situation i Europe. Therefore, a brief review of the type of FSRU terminals, the review input data for analyses, and the type of simulations to be carried out, also review of the current security situation in sea areas. The final result of the work will be create algorithm which will be as a help hand in process for safe selection the location of the FSRU terminal, as well it will be define a catalogue of anticipated risks in the sea areas, and indicate areas of particular sensitivity, i.e., what to put the most significant emphasis on to prepare for the occurrence of a given risk and what are the possibilities of reducing it to an acceptable level or even reversing the trend of increasing threats.
