A systems approach to fire safety can help to control and prevent the consequences of a LNG release. The fire safety analysis must be an integral part of the project from conceptual design through plant start-up and operation.

The old method of reviewing the process design for compliance with established fire safety codes and regulations after many of the design parameters are well defined is technically inadequate. Furthermore, the costs of retrofitting a bad process design, at least from the fire safety viewpoint, to comply with fire safety codes is enormous.

The methodology has evolved to obtain, a cost-effective and operationally reliable fire safety system. This methodology is called fire safety system analysis. Because the potential hazards of a massive LNG release are severe, the most up-to-date, proven technologies must be incorporated into a LNG facility.
