LNG/LPG MARINE TRANSPORTATION AND TERMINAL SAFETY
In summary, adequate diking at LNG Facilities will reduce the risk that an LNG release will cause injury, death or property damage beyond the limits of the facility. However, there is no doubt that LNG is a hazardous commodity, although not the most dangerous being shipped today. It is precisely because of the danger of this cargo that the Coast Guard and others have studied it in great detail. Based upon these studies, some of which are ongoing, it appears that the nature of the cargo LNG does not present an unacceptable risk in its transportation in maritime commerce or in its handling at waterfront facilities. This paper covers the regulations of facilities, regulation of vessels and vessel operations.
