|Item # 59A06|
|Description||Table of Contents|
Apply safeguards for LNG plants across the United States!
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plants associated with pipelines must meet the requirements of NFPA 59A: Standard for the Production, Storage, and Handling of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), the Standard adopted by D.O.T. and referenced by other agencies including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The Standard is used worldwide as the final word on site selection, design, construction, and fire protection for LNG plants.
Broader coverage in the 2006 edition provides better protection:
- First-time provisions for the siting and diking of double containment and full containment LNG containers offers a new level of safety for installations.
- Added flood, wind, snow load considerations impact container design.
- Revised seismic design criteria for large, field-erected LNG containers reflects ASCE 7, which provides more specific criteria and enhances the already conservative seismic design basis.
- Revised design spill sizing guards against accidents. Changes affect containers with penetrations below the liquid level, with internal valves from 1 hour to 10 minutes.
- Revised inspection requirements for field-fabricated containers now allow ultrasonic examination as well as radiographic.
Other changes improve plant security, operations, and maintenance.
The 2006 NFPA 59A presents a new security assessment requirement that impacts all LNG facilities. This edition also introduces revised sizing of pumps to remove rainwater from diked areas; and includes an expanded section on berthing, hose, and loading arm requirements for LNG tankers at marine facilities.
