RISK MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUE FOR DESIGN AND OPERATION OF LNG FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT

Hazards must be controlled when dealing with high-energy facilities at or near high-stress boundary conditions with narrow error tolerance limits. In New York City there are four large Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) facilities in various stages of planning, construction, and operation. The hazards of special concern to New York City include transportation, off-loading, and storage operations; noncompatibility of cryogenic temperatures and materials; and inadequate petrochemical standards. A major accident at any one of these facilities could result in loss of life or valuable energy resources. Realizing this, the New York Fire Department (NYFD) asked NASA to develop an LNG Risk Management System (RMS) under the NASA Technology Utilization Program. The RMS developed for the New York Fire Department identifies risks and controls hazards during design and operation of LNG facilities and equipment through the use of a systems engineering methodology described in this paper.
