Abstract:

Besides education and clear procedures provided in writing, accident prevention includes many other factors. In addition to continuous and quality maintenance and service of the system, efficient prevention of uncontrolled entry in the facilities and telecommunication for all potential hazards such as attempted burglary or detection of gaseous toxin leakage within or outside the facilities arc considered to be of utmost importance. Development of neutralizers appears to be appropriate in case of usual liquefied gas evaporation on pipeline or valve accidents, however, various other possibilities should be anticipated for so-called worst cases when any neutralizer would turn inefficient. In such cases, responsible persons and services should be promptly notified, at the same time trying to buy some time and to prevent immediate release of all the amounts of liquefied gas, thus to be able to warn and protect the population on time.
