Title: Guidance on Hazard and Safety Analyses of LPG Spills on Water.

Abstract

In 2004, at the request of the Department of Energy, Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) prepared a report, "Guidance on the Risk and Safety Analysis of Large Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Spills Over Water". That report provided a framework for assessing hazards and identifying approaches to minimize the consequences to people and property from an LNG spill over water. Because of increasing domestic U.S. supplies of natural gas and associated by products, such as liquefied propane gas (LPG), the United states Coast Guard requested that Sandia assess the general scale of possible hazards for a breach and spill of an LPG carrier. Because of the broad range of LPG carriers types -- refrigerated and pressurized, ships and barges, Sandia chose to focus this analysis on the larger LPG refrigerated systems. With cargo capacities ranging up to 100,000 m 3 , these types of ships can be expected to support potential increased LPG exports. Sandia assessed potential accidental and intentional threats, and based on LPG carrier configurations and designs, estimated potential breach sizes, spill rates and volumes, and conducted fire, vapor dispersion, and detonation hazard analyses. This report summarizes the analyses conducted, the expected range of potential hazards from an associated refrigeratedmore » LPG carrier spill over water, and risk management approaches to minimize consequences to people and property from such a spill.« less
