Table 1 lists the abnormal event scenarios and severity level of their consequences for a particular month in a particular LNG facility. If you are appointed as safety engineer, you are going to use the process accident model, which is developed, by Samith, Khan and Paul to maintain the safety of LNG facility. 1) Set up the Process accident model using the data available in Table1.
