LNG Fire Protection Engineering and Consulting Services

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facilities, like other oil & gas facilities, are required to adhere to very specific fire protection and mitigation standards in accordance with current building and fire prevention codes, as well as NFPA Standards such as NFPA 59A.

Neptune Fire Protection Engineering LLC has the expertise to support developers, owners, EPCs, and operators with regulatory support, risk modeling, fire protection and safety engineering, and emergency response consulting. Neptune has experience working with import and export terminals, marine facilities, peak shavers, liquefaction facilities, and power generation facilities utilizing LNG.

LNG Consulting Services

Neptune’s LNG project experience includes extensive LNG consulting services. These services typically include the analysis or preparation of the following items:

  • NFPA 59A Fire Hazard Assessment Report
  • Fire Protection System Design
  • Consequence Modeling
  • Process Safety Consulting
  • Risk Management Consulting
  • Emergency Response Consulting
  • Third Party Independent Review

We offer consulting services throughout the entire project cycle including project planning and engineering (pre-FEED, FEED, and detailed engineering) through the completion of systems commissioning and final acceptance testing.

LNG Modeling Services

Where required to validate adequate levels of protection and/or mitigation, Neptune has the knowledge and skill to prepare simulations utilizing a variety of different software packages. Modeling services required for the siting analysis of LNG facilities typically include at a minimum Radiant Heat modeling to determine the effects from a fire incident and Gas Dispersion Modeling to determine the potential impacts of an LNG release into the atmosphere.
