Gas Cloud Dissipation and LNG Bunkering Safety

Vehicles and vessels fuelled with natural gas need to be kept safe in the event of an LNG spill or gas cloud vent. The world-leading tools and analysis techniques developed through this project will determine how large the flammable zones are and how they will migrate in the event of LNG spills, pressure-relief valve vents and other planned / unplanned releases of gas. The project will also evaluate the performance of alternative lower-cost materials that can survive exposure to the extreme cold of LNG.
