This paper describes the risk associated with liquefied natural gas/liquefied petroleum gas (LNG/LPG) in general and in particular with the marine transportation of LNG/LPG in bulk. It discusses a risk analysis model, public risk, and shows that insofar as public risk is concerned, ship accidents and subsequent water spills of LNG/LPG are the most predominant controlling factors. Port safety analysis is also discussed. The paper concludes that to achieve an acceptable level of port safety a formal and systematic decision analysis is required.
