Project Title: Statistical Review and Gap Analysis of LNG Failure Rate Table

This report summarizes the results of U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) contract #DTPH56-15-T-00008 to review and consider potential refinements to PHMSA’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) Failure Rate Table (FRT), which is referenced by the answers to question #DS1 and #DS2 of PHMSA’s current information resource webpage “LNG Plant Requirements: Frequently Asked Questions” and also in Volume II of U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC’s) Guidance Manual for Environmental Report Preparation draft version issued December 2015. The FRT establishes the criteria for Design Spills from vaporization, process or LNG transfer areas at LNG plants in order to comply with US 49 Code of Federal Regulation Part 193.
