The article considers the modernization of the periodic sampling system of liquefied natural gas (LNG)by introducing a liquid-gas ejector (LGE) as an alternative to a gas compressor. The unique properties of liquefied natural gas allow the fuel energy to be directed to the ejector without any externalenergy input. Besides, the advantage of this method is that it prevents changes in the original chemical composition of the sample due to the liquid-gas ejector, which does not require lubricating oils. Also, the system reduces the volume of the regasified sample and eliminates the possibility of ejector failure.
