Abstract: Lowell Gas Company in a period of nine weeks successfully purged a 1 Billion cubic foot LNG tank out of service, made necessary repairs and modifications and returned the tank to service. All of this was made possible by maintaining a nitrogen atmosphere in the tank throughout the entire operation. The success of the project can be attributed to pre-planning, when detailed safety, operating, and training procedures were prepared. Several consultants, each one an expert in his field, were used in developing and carrying out the entire operation.
