About the LNG Module
For non-LNG trades, changes in fuel and cargo quantities on board are typically independent of one another. For LNG voyages, however, one of the fuels on board is also the cargo. Fuel transactions affect cargo quantities and vice versa.
The LNG module supports LNG shipping and trading workflows by linking LNG fuel and cargo tracking in IMOS to help users calculate boil-off. LNG is entered into IMOS as both a cargo and a fuel, and any changes to LNG (fuel) or LNG (cargo) quantities are updated in both.
With the LNG module, you can follow the standard IMOS workflow with some modifications:
In the Data Center, set up LNG-specific IMOS records.
In Chartering, do any of the following:
Manage LNG contracts.
Create LNG Voyage Estimates.
In Operations, manage LNG voyages.
On the Operations tab of the Voyage Manager, specify Fuel Consumption Mode for each LNG voyage leg.
In the Voyage Bunkers form, complete additional fields on the LNG detail tab.
Automatically capture data from LNG voyage reports using Veslink.
In Financials, close LNG voyages.
In the Report Designer, run performance reports to benchmark against vessel/Time Charter LNG consumption curves.
Display Cost Per MMBTU
If enabled, then for vessels of type L (LNG), the Estimate and Voyage P&L both display the cost per MMBTU (in addition to the usual TCE figure).
