Part of the BP Process Safety Series, winner of the 2004 Frank Lees medal for the most meritorious publication on the topic of safety and loss prevention in an IChemE publication.
Developed to compliment safety training, the latest edition of Safe Handling of Light Ends is the perfect reference tool and training aid for increasing operators’ awareness of the main hazards of light ends (methane to penthane).
Light end materials, such as LNG or LPG, have a poor safety reputation due to certain well-known incidents, such as Cleveland, Feyzin, Los Alfaques and Mexico City. However, when handled properly by well-trained personnel in correctly designed installations, they present no more risk than other energy sources.
