Risks and dangers:
LNG liquefaction involves a number of risks and dangers. First and foremost, there is the risk of leaks or accidents that can lead to a release of the liquefied gas. It is therefore crucial that all safety precautions are taken to avoid such incidents.
Safety measures and regulations:
To ensure safety in LNG liquefaction, strict regulations and safety measures are put in place for the use of LNG in liquefied form. These include, for example, regular inspections of the facilities, training for personnel and effective emergency management. These measures minimize the risk of accidents and ensure safety.
Emissions and climate change:
Liquefied natural gas is associated with certain environmental impacts. The liquefaction and transportation of the gas can release greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. It is therefore important to take measures to reduce these emissions and explore alternative, more environmentally friendly technologies.
Water consumption and pollution:
Another problem with LNG liquefaction is the high water consumption. Large amounts of water are needed to cool the gas, which can lead to a strain on local water resources. In addition, the liquefied natural gas can pollute the water in leaking systems. It is therefore important to take appropriate measures to minimize water consumption and protect water quality.
