WHAT HAPPENS WHEN LNG SPILLS?

The worldwide shortage of natural gas, largely methane, has led to widespread activity in setting up projects to transport liquefied natural gas (LNG) from producing countries to gas-hungry population centers. There is some concern that transportation of LNG may lead to accidents that will release the liquefied product and endanger lives and property. This paper reviews the development of LNG technology, cites a number of misconceptions regarding LNG, and reviews information on the behavior of LNG during and after spills.
