Overview

This book contains useful profiles of the risks associated with gas operations and highlights the risks that are connected to gas operations for those who administer ports and provide essential services in port areas.

Gas tanker and terminal operations carry a range of operational risks due to transporting, storing and transferring natural gas and petroleum gases. The risks involved are unique to liquefied gas operations and require specific measures to manage them.

The book draws on SIGTTO’s Information Paper 14 (Site Selection and Design for LNG Ports and Jetties). This paper clarifies the protective location for gas terminals and argues that major risk elements should be eliminated by locating gas operations in areas where they are not exposed to uncontrolled threats.

The guidance in this document acknowledges the dynamic nature of operating environments and the fact that risk profiles will change with time. As a result, residual risk exposures may also change and therefore a reassessment will be required.

Operators require both a systematic assessment of operating risk and a range of risk reduction methods that can be tailored to be effective in specific circumstances. This book aims to satisfy both these requirements.
