About The Webinar
When planning to design and build an LNG facility, owners and operators must work within the regulatory rules imposed by domestic or international bodies. Depending on the type and size of the facility, different regulations may apply to the proper siting of a facility.
This webinar covered an overview of siting regulations and standards that apply to LNG facilities, with a special emphasis on those in the United States. Furthermore, we discussed what regulations apply to various types of LNG facilities.
