Abstract: When the LNG facilities design is completed, built, and passed the miriad of regulatory requirements, the automalic application of the title turn key is applied. This is as far from the truth as the distance of the sun from the earth, because emergency response manning must go on beyond the turn-key concept. The flexible, emergency response capability, in the form of people, must be alert lo the situations one step beyond Ihe automated and/or fix fire control concept. The step beyond requiring the need for fire control, which will be discussed in this paper, is postulated on the premise that an unlikely LNG spill has occurred and that all shutdown automatic and manual controls operate according to design. However, enough liquid is being continually released such that a vapor cloud is sustained in the direction of an adequate ignition source.
