Description

The methodologies for performing hazard assessment following a loss of
containment of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) for land-based facilities are
fairly standardized, and well accepted by public and regulators alike.
However, there is disagreement, even amongst the experts, on the events
following an LNG spill on water. The rising fear among the public concerning
the terror threats to LNG carriers and the increase in ship traffic expected
due to the proposed LNG import terminals led to the following LNG safety
studies (ABS study , DNV report , Sandia report ) within a span of 6-8
months from each other. The most likely outcome of an LNG release on water
will be a pool fire involving the entire contents of the tank. This
presentation provides the sophisticated consequence analysis of LNG release
on water. The presentation also discusses LNG hazards such as dispersion,
fire, explosion, and Rapid Phase Transitions (RPTs) along with various risk
mitigation measures.
