I find it hard to believe that any insulation other than vacuum would be workable for LNG at -160 C.  

So, if you are going to have a vacuum bottle inside a support structure, with the interior space a vacuum, then the interesting question becomes: how do you separate the two shells?  There will have to be some form of spacer.  It cannot be a metal, as the rate of heat transfer would defeat the purpose of the vacuum chamber.  You could make a series of wood rings, molded of thin strips and glued together, assuming that the set glue will retain its characteristics at low temperatures.  An interesting engineering exercise!

Thanks Jan:

academically interesting, however

All I would like to hear at the moment is about the manufacturers of tanks for transport of LNG on small scale same as domestic and commercial use of LPG. In the same space 600 times (by volume) more gas can be stored.

kindly share if anyone knows.
