Default Got Gas?

Liqiud Natural Gas that is. These LNG Tankers come through the harbor near my work to fill up these huge tanks that run along the highway further down. This is a BIG operation.

A helicopter sweeps the harbor as well as Bostons finest out on police boats checking other vessels and making sure no one poses a threat to the motherload. This thing as you can tell is HUUUUGE!!! Imagine if this thing blew? No more financial district.

Thought I'd Share.

Wanna be scared? I was trained a few years ago to fight LP tank fires at HP. The big risk is a BLEVE. Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion. You don't want to be anywhere near a ship, rail car, or truck. The explosive potential in this type of thing is phenomenal.

Oh I bet. I would say anything within a half mile of the ship, if it blew, would be affected. My building would be flattened.
