Liquefied natural gas has been transported in bulk by sea for some 15 years and the volume of traffic has increased steadily throughout that time, with every likelihood of further expansion in the medium term future.

The safety record of these operations has been good, with no loss of substantial quantities of the product, either from ship or shore operations.

Nevertheless, the inherent energy content of the cargo and the experience of the one catastrophic accident involving LNG (in a pioneering peak-shaving plant at Cleveland in 1944) have attracted critical attention to the hazards that may be associated with LNG transport and this has had a major impact on some proposed projects, especially in the USA, and lengthy delays and changes of plans have ensued. This paper is intended to review the safety issues as they appear in the light of the latest developments in risk assessment, and in the context of current standards of LNG facility design and operation.
