We discuss the problem of modelling an LNG supply chain efficiently. The production, processing, transportation and consumption of LNG (liquid natural gas) and the associated products are a topic of major interest in the energy industry. While the problem is apparently continuous, analysis suggests that this problem can be modelled using discrete, deterministic techniques. A method involving a modification of the three phase discrete technique was used. Analysis of the way in which the effects of an event spread leads to a method by which excessive recalculation can be avoided, yielding a model that is computationally very efficient.
