Abstract : The patent describes a cryogenic storage vessel comprising a liquid storage volume, a conduit leading from that volume, a large flowable mass of solid spherical insulators within that conduit and a diaphragm at the end of the conduit opposite the liquid storage volume. The ambient pressure of the seawater surrounding the apparatus is transmitted to the cryogenic liquid by means of displacement of the diaphragm which is in contact with the ambient seawater and the corresponding change in the internal volume of the liquid storage apparatus.
