Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is a source of clean energy when compared to oil and coal. For easy transportation, Natural Gas (NG) is cooled to minus 162 degrees Celsius to transform into liquid. As the conversion ratio of NG to LNG is 600:1 by volume, large quantities of NG can be transported over long distances by LNG ships/carriers.
The Dragon LNG terminal is currently under development at Waterston, Milford Haven in Wales, UK to import and store LNG. The terminal would have the capacity to receive and unload 71,000 to 165000 m3 (cubic metre) capacity LNG carriers in approximately 24 hours. The LNG for the Milford Haven terminal will come from North Africa (Egypt and Algeria), West Africa, the Caribbean (Trinidad) and Malaysia.
Dragon LNG terminal gives importance to the following ten parameters, as the 10 Golden Rules of Construction:
- Permit to work
- Management of change
- Confined space entry
- Working at heights
- Energy isolation
- Lifting operations
- Ground disturbance
- Driving safety
