Safe Transportation of Liquefied Natural Gas by Railroad Tank Car
September 29, 2021
The Transportation Research Board will meet on 29 September 2021 in a closed session.
This NASEM committee will review plans and activities to inform government and industry decisions about the transportation of liquefied natural gas by rail and consider ways to ensure the continued safety of these shipments over the longer-term.
The committee’s review will be carried out in two phases, each producing a report with findings and recommendations as appropriate. Phase 1 focuses on the plans and progress of the PHMSA-FRA LNG Task Force, which has developed and begun executing a multi-task program. Phase 2 involves a detailed study of topics relevant to ensuring the safe movement of LNG by rail.
