In this paper we review hydrodynamic and nautical studies for offshore LNG operations. Based on full mission bridge simulations, model tests campaigns, time domain simulations, fast time maneuvering simulations and downtime assessments, we address the major findings in terms of weather limitations, tugboat requirements and other critical aspects for the berthing and offloading operation.
