SBM invited a team of experts to perform a hazard identification of side-by-side LNG transfer between a turret-moored Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) and a standard LNG carrier, using loading arms of conventional chicksan type. The objective was to identify the risks involved and consider whether they could be mitigated and acceptable risk levels achieved. The paper presents the approach, highlights significant hazards and discusses key assumptions and risk controls.
