3 Historical background The first thoughts regarding the liquefaction and transport of gases go some way back in time. In 1915 Godfrey Cabot proposed the shipment of LNG by means of river barges. In 1937 SirAlfred Egerton proposed thatthe British gas industry which was at that time based on the carbonisation ofcoal, should extract a fraction ofthe methane contentfrom the coal gas, liquefy it and store itforsubsequent evaporation for peak shaving purooses. The firstattempt to store liquefied naturalgas in bulkon a com- mercial scale was not promising.

The intention was that gas in ? t liquid form would be transported by road to regional distribution centres where it would be regasified and delivered to consum- ers. 3 One such distribution centre was built at Ambergate, v Derbyshire. Unfortunately for the new LNG industry in the UK, the discovery of large amounts of oil and gas in the North Sea meant that the development was not continued and direct transmission of the newly discovered gas into the National Transmission System at Bacton and St Fergus took its place.
