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.

Our Team

Marcel Amorós Martí

Director and Partner

As the head of our California office and lead of our PSM practice, Mr. Amorós Martí’s experience consists of a diverse range of industries from chemical and petrochemical to oil and gas and utilities. He is skilled in both the technical and project management aspects of process safety and loss prevention.

Mr. Amorós Martí's expertise includes pressure relief and flare systems design for large chemical and petrochemical companies around the globe and in the United States. He specializes in evaluating the risk of chemical, petroleum, and pharmaceutical process facilities, including: identifying hazardous scenarios, estimating the frequency, modeling the consequences, and leading the decision-making process for implementing suitable and cost-effective safeguards.

In addition, Mr. Amorós Martí has authored many industry white papers and publications, and he is an avid participant at major technical conferences in the U.S. and internationally. He also facilitates training related to process safety management and pressure relief and flare systems design.

Project Sampling

Conducted advanced dynamic simulations for PRFS design of reactive systems, including fire-induced thermal decomposition reactive cases and two-phase dynamic modeling.

Conducted LOPA studies for oil and gas refineries to identify existing layers of protection in order to decrease the risk levels, estimated via QRA to a tolerable limit.

Conducted consequence modeling and QRA studies involving a wide array of toxic and flammable materials. Knowledgeable in providing recommendations for optimizing the implementation of specific risk reduction measures intended to prevent and/or mitigate the actual level of risk, emergency planning implementation, recommending land-use planning decision-making, and analyzing both facility siting and potential domino effects triggered by explosions and fires.

Led the effort to design a complex fluid curtain system to mitigate toxic dispersions from several process units in an oil and gas facility. The design included defining the system parameters such as spray nozzle characteristics, fluid type, flow requirements, and solubility, as well as ensuring operation as an Independent Protection Layer (IPL).

Taught the PHA/HAZOP Leader Course on team leader concepts, techniques for effective facilitation, a review of PHA revalidations, and PHA methodologies such as HAZOP, What-if and Checklist methodologies.

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.

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 LNG plant in the U.S. was planning the renovation and expansion of its existing facilities, as well as replacing and installing new pipelines for transmission and distribution. Before construction began, the client needed to be sure the potential risks were identified and successfully managed to prevent any release of LNG and damage to their existing equipment and storage tank. 
An LNG manufacturer had four nearly identical trains with three flare header systems. The client decided they wanted to use a new and more stringent criteria than previously performed under a different design criterion. The large scope and tedious nature of the data entry was a challenge since all calculations needed to be checked to determine the maximum pressure each flare pipe line would be exposed to.

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.
