NFPA 59A: Standard for the Production, Storage, and Handling of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), 2013 Edition
|Item # 59A13|
Apply NFPA 59A for LNG plant safety and compliance throughout the United States and in installations around the globe.
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plants must meet the requirements of NFPA 59A: Standard for the Production, Storage, and Handling of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), adopted by D.O.T. and referenced by other agencies including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. In addition to use in the U.S., NFPA 59A is trusted worldwide as the final word on site selection, design, construction, and fire protection for LNG plants.
New Chapter 15 incorporates a performance-based option.
The 2013 edition of NFPA 59A relocates Annex E, Performance-Based Alternative Standard for Plant Siting into the mandatory text as new Chapter 15, Performance (Risk Assessment) Based LNG Plant Siting. This performance-based option requires analyzing the risks to persons and property in the area surrounding the proposed LNG plant based on risk mitigation techniques incorporated into the facility design. The analysis and siting plan must then be approved by the local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Tables and figures in new Chapter 15 help facility designers and AHJs identify risks and determine if risks are tolerable.
Other important changes in the 2013 NFPA 59A:
- Revised Design Spill table separates the design spill requirements for over-the-top fill/withdrawal containers, other containers, and process areas.
- Scope statements have been added to each chapter.
- Term radiant heat flux replaces thermal radiation throughout the document.
The latest edition of NFPA 59A is essential for architects, owners, designers, engineers, fire safety officers, AHJs, and anyone responsible for LNG plant safety. (Softbound, 66 pp., 2013)
