Safety in the LNG Value Chain
- Type: Archived Webinar
- Level: Intermediate
- Duration: 1 hour
- PDHs: 1.00
In this webinar, presenters describe and examine potential LNG (liquefied natural gas) hazards and risk-reduction methods for the LNG value chain ― production and consumption. Included are examples for liquefaction, transportation (pipelines, marine tankers and trucks), storage and re-gasification, both onshore and offshore. As LNG becomes a more viable option for meeting energy needs around the world, the associated risks must be evaluated and mitigated. In the U.S. for example, development of new technology for recovery of natural gas has changed the economics so drastically that we have gone from building LNG import terminals to exporting LNG in less than a decade. The abundance of LNG has even made its use as a vehicle fuel one of the fastest growing applications.
