Diary listing

LNG, Liquified Natural Gas, is a type of energy product that is becoming ever more important. Natural gas is cooled to an extremely low temperature, which turns it into a liquid, thus making it easier to move around, particularly for countries that do not have an extensive or reliable pipeline network. The liquefied gas is then transported by other means, principally by ship, from supplier to buyer. The gas is considered safer than other energy sources, as, in its liquefied state it is non-flammable.

Nonetheless, there are significant safety and security risks associated with LNG, and LNG Safety and security (13-14 Dec) will explore the risks and look at strategies for mitigating them. There are several points at which LNG carries particular risks: storage, at loading/unloading and during shipping. As the gas is transported in massive quantities, any accident or attack would potentially cause huge and costly damage.

This conference would over a variety of angles and job titles but it is ultimately about the bottom line impact of LNG security and safety issues.

The program would also cover most of the following areas: security, safety, operational integrity, insurance, chartering issues and possibly legal issues.
