LNG boiling rates are critical in determining the potential hazard that can result from LNG spills. Such rates are dependent on the surface onto which the LNG is spilled and control the extent of the hazard, all other variables assumed constant. Methods for predicting downwind vapor dispersion are available and potential hazard estimates can be made if spill rates, impoundment geometries, boiling rates and atmospheric conditions are specified. Results of a test program are presented and discussed in terms of practical recommendations.
