About The Webinar
According to the US Department of Energy, the US is the world’s largest producer of natural gas. Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) is the cleanest known fossil fuel and is considered an alternative energy source to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, the process to liquefy, store, and distribute this fuel presents several challenges from a safety point of view.
This webinar revealed the 7 LNG hazards you need to be aware of in your facility. Drew Botwinick, the Managing Risk Consultant at Gexcon US, provided a fundamental overview of LNG hazards that apply for various types of LNG facilities. Utilizing actual testing videos, participants could easily visualize and understand the potential exposure caused by these hazards. The physical consequences generated by these hazards was further outlined and highlighted through theoretical discussion.
