Abstract

The inherent safety perspective is a powerful approach for tackling and communicating the real threats associated to regasification terminals. A set of inherent safety Key Performance Indicators (IS- KPIs) is introduced and demonstrated in current study. The application of integrated hazard identification techniques provided relevant accident scenarios, yielding a basis to understand the credible safety distances and the actual risk performance of the system. The specific analysis of the loss of containment scenarios allowed the definition of Leading KPIs, based on worst case consequence assessment. Specific indicators were devoted to hazards from external actions, as intentional malicious acts. A preliminary exploration of the safety performance of alternative LNG regasification technologies was carried out. Reference technologies applicable to on-shore and off-shore terminals were reviewed and reference schemes developed. The application evidenced the potential of the KPI technique in pinpointing the critical issues related to alternative configurations of regasification terminals.
