This manual has been prepared by FLNG for the benefit of terminal users, transporters, vessel masters and ship agents. This manual provides important information on the FLNG marine terminal and its approach channel. Key components include information on terminal entry and departure procedures, berth and mooring structure diagrams, manifold and shore connection diagrams and FLNG corporate policies at the terminal.
The Freeport LNG terminal as well as the LNG tankers that visit the facility were built to meet the most stringent design, construction, operations and maintenance requirements and feature redundant, nearly fail-safe safety systems. These systems shut down the operations completely when the vessel or a facility are not performing correctly or in the event that certain operations or equipment fail. Freeport LNG is striving for a perfect safety record and has made a serious conceptual, operational and financial commitment to ensure that it succeeds.
However, in the event that there is an emergency at the terminal, Freeport LNG has prepared an emergency response information booklet that explains what residents, workers and visitors in the area immediately surrounding the terminal should know and do.
Department of Transportation 49 CFR §192.616 requires pipeline operators to develop and implement a written continuing public education program that follows the guidance set forth in the American Petroleum Institute's Recommended Practice 1162. Freeport LNG has implemented this Public Awareness Program in accordance with these regulations. The information contained herein is designed to increase the public's awareness of Freeport LNG's pipeline location, aid in recognition of potential pipeline hazards and provide contact information to be used in the case of a pipeline emergency.
