The patent application (Publication Number: US20230408035A1) describes a system for supplying gas to high-pressure and low-pressure gas-consuming apparatus on a floating structure. The system includes a tank for gas storage, a first gas supply circuit for high-pressure gas-consuming apparatus with a pump and evaporator, a second circuit for low-pressure gas-consuming apparatus with a compressor, and a gas return line with heat exchangers. The system also includes an auxiliary supply line with a low-pressure evaporator and pumps to regulate gas pressure.

Furthermore, the patent application details the configuration of the return line, heat exchangers, and pumps to efficiently supply gas to the high-pressure and low-pressure gas-consuming apparatus on the floating structure. The system allows for the loading and unloading of liquid gas from the floating structure using on-shore or port facilities, enabling the transfer of gas in the liquid state to or from the tank through appropriate connectors. Overall, the system and method described in the patent application aim to optimize the supply of gas to different gas-consuming apparatus on a floating structure, enhancing operational efficiency and safety during gas storage and transportation.
