LNG Safety and Integrity 

A comprehensive and interactive course addressing safety and integrity considerations through the lifecycle of LNG projects from feasibility to design, operations and decommissioning.

Attendance will provide practical knowledge of technical safety and integrity risks in small, medium and large-scale LNG value chains from gas pre-treatment to liquefaction, storage and vaporisation both onshore and offshore including transportation, LNG fuels and bunkering.

What you will learn

    • Overview of pre-treatment, liquefaction, cold boxes & regasification processes
    • Appreciation of LNG hazards, the causes of historical LNG safety incidents and how to defend against them
    • How LNG hazards and risks differ from other hazardous materials (CNG, LPG, petrol, etc)
    • Regulatory requirements and key codes and standards
    • Key stakeholders (shipyards, EPCs, FSRU owners/operators, risk management consultants, etc)
    • Onshore and Offshore LNG import and export terminals, how to choose between them, how/where to locate them and the safety considerations
    • Challenges specific to FLNG and how to address them
    • LNG storage and transfer operations and pro’s and cons of different designs/concepts
    • LNG shipping, marine tank safety considerations, class societies, rules, LNG cargo containment systems and boil-off handling
    • LNG fuels, bunkering, storage and truck examples and standards
    • Major accident events to be considered, typical risk studies needed and why
    • Equipment for managing LNG safety and how they differ from other plant (eg refineries)
