LNG Risk Management

Managing the risks of onshore and offshore LNG facilities via a thorough understanding of the design and key issues associated with liquefied natural gas.

Our multifaceted approach takes into consideration the needs of regulators, engineering contractors and most importantly, you. LNG terminals, send-out facilities and associated pipelines, and power plants around the world rely on our extensive experience to complete QRAs, HAZOP and hazard identification studies, safety integrity level (SIL) reviews, and consequence analysis modeling.

Daniel Nguyen, PE & PMP

Senior Vice President and Partner

Mr. Nguyen manages product development, along with all aspects of pressure relief and flare systems evaluation and design projects and hazard identification in the petrochemical, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries. Mr. Nguyen has conducted many consequence analysis and quantitative risk assessment (QRA) studies involving a wide range of flammable materials. His extensive presentation experience includes topics such as vibration-induced fatigue, managing complex pressure relief and flare systems projects, and SuperChems™ training and updates. He is fluent in English and Vietnamese.

Mr. Nguyen leads the development of ioMosaic’s Process Safety Office® software, a technical calculation tool used by engineers and risk analysts to calculate and assess hazards and risks. He is responsible for a team of software engineers creating and improving the many integrated components of Process Safety Office®, which include SuperChems™ and PHAGlobal®.

Before joining ioMosaic, Mr. Nguyen was a manager in the Safety and Risk Management division at Arthur D. Little, Inc., where he conducted a wide range of process safety and risk management activities. Prior to joining Arthur D. Little, Mr. Nguyen was employed at Aspen Technology, Inc. as a process development engineer. While at Aspen, he developed and enhanced several distillation/separation models and was among the key members who developed ASPEN Plus’ first graphical user interface.

Project Sampling

Consolidated a large-scale emergency response plan that coordinates dozens of institutions and agencies to share the same resources in a highly concentrated area within the City of Boston.

Worked with the U.S. Coast Guard, local fire departments, and City of Boston to review the state of preparedness and consolidated existing emergency plans for responding to liquefied natural gas (LNG) emergencies within the City of Boston and contiguous areas during LNG ship transit into the Boston Harbor.

Led and participated in dozens of commercial HAZard and OPerability (HAZOP) studies, which focused on the following systems: batch processes, medical devices, burner management systems, utilities, gas/steam/diesel turbines, aerosol can products, fire protection, and flare systems.

Conducted many PSM and RMP audits for a variety of facilities.

Reviewed patents and conducted a technical and economic feasibility study of nitrogen tri-fluoride manufacturing for a joint venture between companies in the United Kingdom and South Africa.

Process Safety Management Quality Audits

Companies have implemented their process safety management programs to comply with OSHA and EPA requirements, but they continue to have accidents. Process safety management programs can meet the letter of the law, but may not be effective in preventing accidents. Traditional audit programs look at documentation and procedures, but do little to evaluate the program quality or effectiveness.

View Case Study

An international consumer products manufacturer suffered a significant business interruption due to failure of a critical support facility. This incident raised the question of whether there were other critical support facilities that could cause a similar interruption in production or a significant safety or environmental impact.


The California Energy Commission had been directed to assist in the development of clean alternate transportation fuels. As part of this effort they are supporting the commercialization of fuel cell vehicles operating on hydrogen fuel. In order to be used extensively in the transportation sector, the safety of hydrogen production, storage, and supply needs to be addressed.

A multinational energy company wanted to complete an evaluation of a PRV system in order to comply with the PSM standard OSHA 29 CFR 1910.119 which requires that employers compile information pertaining to the equipment in the process, including relief system design and design basis.

Quantify Non-Equilibrium Flow and Rapid Phase Transitions (RPT)

Although non-equilibrium flow and rapid phase transitions (RPT) are well researched, the literature published so far does not explicitly quantify the RPT phenomenon or provide reliable methods for the calculation of non-equilibrium flow for mixtures. Download this paper for a clear understanding of how non-equilibrium flow and rapid phase transitions develop and how they should be quantified for pure components and mixtures alike.
