TECHNOLOGY AND CURRENT PRACTICES FOR PROCESSING, TRANSFERRING AND STORING LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS

Current state-of-the-art safety information related to the design, location, construction, operation and maintenance of facilities required for liquefaction, transfer, storage, and revaporization of natural gas is assembled and summarized. A detailed review of codes, standards and practices pertaining to LNG installations is presented along with an evaluation of present trends in LNG safety requirements. LNG safety research programs completed or in progress are described and key research results summarized. Finally a methodology for quantitative assessment of risks associated with LNG facilities is outlined. The report provides a compendium of background information from which the Office of Pipeline Safety may select and build in carrying out its regulatory responsibilities relating to LNG facilities.
