Fire Protection of LNG facilities

The provincial push for exploration and development of natural gas in British Columbia requires significant investment in liquefied natural gas (LNG).  The hazards of liquefied natural gas are well documented but the extraction, processing and storage hazards as well as fire prevention and fire protection of LNG facilities require careful analysis and engineering judgement.

Don Delcourt of Jensen Hughes Consulting Canada will present an overview of Liquefied Natural Gas plants, LNG properties, LNG plant hazards, fire & explosion risks and typical mitigation measures.  He was involved in a three year project with BC Hydro to determine the fire & explosion risks, and major fire protection upgrades to the Tilbury Island LNG plant before it was sold to BC Gas/Terasen/FortisBC's.  Don will also provide lessons learned on our current approach to risk assessment and deterministic gas  modeling.
