Minimising risk during LNG transfer
LNG Transfer Systems for offshore hose LNG transfer
in ship-to-ship, shore-to-ship, bunkering and mobile response.
KLAW LNG delivers safe ship-to-ship transfer systems for LNG carriers and LNGRV (LNG Regasification Vessels).
Hundreds of commercial LNG transfers are safely and efficiently conducted every year using KLAW LNG safety transfer systems.
KLAW LNG Emergency Release Systems minimise risk of LNG spillage by shutting down flow of LNG when an emergency occurs during transfer.
Integrating KLAW LNG systems into a LNG transfer system will help protect the system and other assets such as ships, hoses and equipment in the area of the spill. Risk of injury to personnel in the immediate area is therefore minimized and risk of contamination to others and the environment is also greatly reduced.
If an emergency occurs then the KLAW LNG safety system will help maintain the integrity of the closed system. Keeping the medium within the transfer system will therefore help ensure that you maintain control over the event.
The technical knowledge and experience of KLAW and the considerable investment into LNG safety transfer R&D is why KLAW delivers the reassurance that is vital when specifying and commissioning safety-critical systems.
The care and diligence demonstrated in commissioning the proven technology of KLAW Emergency Release Systems into a LNG transfer system is what helps to protect the reputation of not just the LNG Ship Owner and LNG Operator but also the reputation of the LNG sector as a whole.
Reducing risk in LNG management and transfer
The following is a simple introduction to the KLAW process of design and management of risk.
KLAW LNG safety transfer systems offer solutions to a particular segment of the overall process of offshore LNG processing and management. This is the protection of the system during LNG ship to ship, ship to shore and bunkering operations.
Protection against risk requires a continuing process of risk assessment and risk management and it is this process that is integral to the design of KLAW systems.
Risk can be categorised as the events and consequences that produce the circumstances that present the probability of an event occurring and the characteristics of such events; the probability of performance and non-performance of the system in response to each event; the performance of units within the system and the performance of individual components and material within these units.
KLAW risk assessment procedures are integral to its product design and manufacture and include processes such as HAZOP and FMEA.
