About the Webinar

Throughout the history of the process industries, there have been a number of incidents where accidental releases of flammable materials have led to fires and/or explosions—resulting in multiple injuries and fatalities, both onsite and offsite. Regardless of regulatory requirements, facility managers carry the responsibility to not only identify hazards but also to understand the potential consequences from unintentional releases. 
Leveraging guidance from regulatory bodies and industry best practices, safety stakeholders perform siting studies to help prevent and mitigate the potential impact from accidental toxic and flammable releases to those onsite and offsite. These studies can ensure the appropriate layout of process equipment to avoid or minimize the consequences of releases, such as congested areas and ignition sources, as well as to minimize the risk to personnel onsite in control rooms, admin and maintenance buildings. 
While many of these analyses can be performed in a more qualitative manner by considering “maximum credible” events, at times it is necessary to conduct more advanced quantitative studies to understand the potential risks to the plant and public—and to identify mitigation measures to help minimize such risk. This session will talk about advanced approaches for modeling hazards in LNG facilities (e.g. toxic and flammable releases, jet and pool fires and vapor cloud explosions). This discussion will cover when it is appropriate to use analytical 2D tools or when it is appropriate to apply more advanced 3D CFD modeling tools.

The webinar features a live presentation followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. Please register even if you’re not able to attend during the scheduled time. We will record the session and make it available as soon after the webinar concludes.
