This publication provides an insight into the design and operation of liquefied gas installations and the equipment that is essential to their safe and efficient functioning. It provides an overview of the properties of flammable liquids and gases that are most commonly encountered.

How these gases are stored and transported, either under pressure or in a refrigerated state or both, are also explained. Emergency response strategies are covered in depth, from the contingency planning stage to firefighting media and procedures as well as personal protective equipment.

This publication covers a broad spectrum of the liquefied gas industry, including large refrigerated and smaller pressurised storage terminals, ships, cylinder filling plant and road and rail tanker loading racks. It is aimed at operational staff, e.g. plant supervisors and ships’ officers who are involved in handling flammable liquefied gas. Fire officers and other emergency planners who look after liquefied gas installations will also find this publication useful.
