Symposium on Fire Protection for LNG Industry

10/04/2006


Fire-suppression equipment manufacturer Ansul, is hosting a symposium Oct. 16%%MDASSML%%18 at its Fire Technology Center in Marinette, Wis., to discuss comprehensive fire-protection for the the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry.

The symposium will be two full days of classroom sessions, roundtable discussions and hands-on fire suppression demonstrations.

For more than 40 years, according to Ansul officials, the company has been providing comprehensive fire protection for this industry, which is one of the energy industry’s fastest growing segments. In the United States alone, forty new LNG terminals are either before the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Administration or in the discussion stage. Globally, U.S. President Bush and other G8 leaders agreed to call for lower barriers to energy trade and investment, with a special emphasis on LNG.

This proposed expansion calls for everyone within the industry to be on the same page and working together for the common good.

“The symposium is designed to address the significant challenges facing the LNG industry including fire safety and protection—from liquefaction to shipping, to regasification and storage, to distribution,” said Dennis Kennedy, vice president and general manager, engineered systems/foam products. “With this symposium, we are expanding our commitment to bringing together experts from a variety of disciplines to focus on meeting the fire and life-safety trials often found within this arena,” said Kennedy.

Along with its own in-house team, Ansul is sponsoring additional industry experts who will give the symposium attendees insight into a variety of topics related to LNG. Dr. Phani Raj, President, Technology & Management Systems, Inc.; John Morgan, Chief Emergency Response Officer, Dolphin Energy Limited; and Dwight Williams, President, Williams Fire & Hazard Control, Inc. will be in attendance and will be lending their expertise to the symposium as guest speakers.
