Leakage may occur in liquefied natural gas storage and transportation. Due its to intrinsic dangers,it is very important to look for its leakage causes. Discussed are harms resulted from liquefied natural gas leakage and described are some control measures. Main preventive measure is to select safe storage and transportation techniques. High multiple foam system can control leakage extent efficiently in case of leakage and a cofferdam can reduce range affected by leakage.
