Galeomma

Shell's Galeomma seen at anchor off Point Fortin Trinidad on the 28th June 2003.
She is of a similar, though much older design than the British Trader, this design being known as the 'Membrane' method. Membrane implys many layers of insulation to keep the cargo cool, and so the cargo is kept at atmospheric pressure. The other method in mainstream use is the Moss-Rosenberg system, where the LNG is kept in it's liquid state by keeping it under pressure. Those ships are easily recognisable by the large Domes on deck.
As I recall she was having major machinery problems, and we had taken her loading spot as a result.
