A BMT customer was looking to build an LNG terminal in Shenzhen, China for transporting cargo from Shenzhen to Hong Kong via LNG vessels.
The proposed development would require the vessels to travel on a relatively busy and narrow water channel called Tonggu Channel.
BMT was commissioned by the customer to carry out a Marine QRA (MQRA) to assess the additional risk from the LNG tankers to the land population along the Tonggu channel. The result of the QRA study was expressed in the form of individual risk contours and societal risk F-N curves.
In order to calculate the individual risk and societal risk, the following steps were carried out:
BMT’s combined experience in hazard assessment and marine safety enabled the accurate identification of the relative risk of various transit routes.
The individual risk and societal risk results were benchmarked against international risk assessment standards. We concluded that the LNG transit route did not pose significant risk on the population near the Tonggu Channel.
Other BMT services provided for this development:
BMT, together with Samsung C&T Corporation and Anatara Koh Pte Ltd provided offshore engineering consultancy and construction services for the Singapore LNG terminal secondary and tertiary berths at Jurong Island.
BMT has been providing engineering support to Muhibbah Engineering Bhd for the LNG Regasification Facilities Project, commencing from FEED for the LNG regas unit and the Island berth.
Singapore's JTC Corporation, in collaboration with the Safety and Risk Management Safety Centre (SRMC) conducted a series of pilot Quantitative Risk Assessment studies to establish the applicability of the new QRA guidelines in the local context. BMT has been invited by JTC and SRMC to bid for the pilot study using new QRA guidelines on an existing manufacturing facility in Singapore.
BMT assisted in the development of offshore oil facilities on Pulau Busing Island, off Singapore's busy south coast. The work was motivated by the increasing costs of oil, and the BMT team was in place to assess a total engineering design and project management consultancy for four new jetties.
