It is apparent from the literature on LNG spills that there is a considerable lack of knowledge in many areas of technical importance to the safety assessment of LNG receiving terminals. For this reason, a thorough critical review of the state-of-the-art regarding the technical aspects of LNG spill evaluation is in preparation. The purpose of this review is to focus attention on these aspects of the problem that are least understood and which are crucial to a proper assessment of the hazards. It is realized that ERDA has already conducted an LNG Safety and Control Workship, the outcome of which was a set of conclusions and recommendations regarding the safety and control issues of LNG operations.
