1980 LNG Conference
Set For Kyoto, Japan
The Sixth International Con- ference and Exhibition on Lique- fied Natural Gas (LNG-6) will be held April 6 through April 11, 1980, at the International Con- ference Hall in Kyoto, Japan.
Sponsored by the International
Gas Union, London, England, the
Institute of Gas Technology, Chi- cago, 111., and the International
Institute of Refrigeration, Paris,
France, the conference will bring together speakers and exhibitors worldwide to present develop- ments in LNG technology and trade since the close of LNG-5, held in Dusseldorf, Germany, in
August 1977. That conference at- tracted 1,600 registrants from 38 countries, and 120 exhibitors from 13 countries.
LNG-6 co-chairmen are E. Gior- gis, vice president of the Inter- national Gas Union and delegate administrator of Compagnie In- dustrielle et Commerciale du Gaz,
Switzerland, and Hiroshi Anzai, president of the Japan Gas Asso- ciation and chairman of Tokyo
Gas Company, Ltd. Mr. Anzai also serves as chairman of the LNG-6
Host of LNG-6 is the Japan
L-GFmeans reliability and economy
Reliability, economy and simple maintenance are proven features of slow-running diesel propulsion.
Now, a further saving in fuel of 8% is a fact where L-GF propulsion machinery is specified.
Reliability. The L-GF long-stroke engine is already at sea. More than eighty
L-GF engines are on order. The design is a straightforward development of the outstandingly successful
B&W K-GF range, already installed or on order to a total of more than 6.000,000 bhp.
Economy. L stands for long-stroke giving lower r/min and consequently increased propeller efficiency (5%). Further, the long-stroke results in thermodynamic advantages giving a reduction in specific fuel consumption (3%).
