The Icing's on the Cake, Not the Plant. When building an onshore regasification terminal, the cost to insulate the cryogenic piping and equipment is typically only 1-3% of the overall construction budget. However, the labour-intensive nature of cryogenic insulation means that the physical work can span up to 30% of the construction schedule. Furthermore, because of the necessity of waiting for the pipe to be installed, welded, inspected, and
released, this work is always compressed toward the end of the project. Whether construction is stick-built or modular, cryogenic insulation will always be on the critical path.
