Gravity Based Structures (GBS) are considered important options for LNG import terminals. Fixed to the seabed, they offer a stable platform for storage and regassification. A GBS with optimum orientation can act as a sizeable shield for the LNG carriers moored alongside if the wind and waves are strongly directional. This can, in turn, significantly reduce weather downtime.
