The U.S. imports natural gas (NG) by pipeline from Canada & by tanker as liquefied natural gas (LNG) from overseas. LNG -- a super-cooled form of NG -- currently accounts for about 3% of total U.S. NG supply, with an expected increase to about 17% by 2030. With this projected increase, many more LNG import terminals have been proposed. However, concerns have been raised about whether LNG tankers could become terrorist targets, causing the LNG cargo to spill & catch on fire, & potentially explode. A study is considering these effects; completion is expected in 2008. The author: describes the results of recent studies on the conseq. of an LNG spill; & identifies the conseq. of a terrorist attack on an LNG tanker. Charts & tables.
