Recently, the natural gas is expected to be an environmentally friendlier energy and alternative to the nuclear energy. In the social situation, many oil and gas and engineering companies had studied FEEDs (Front End of Engineering Designs) of FLNG (LNG-FPSO) expected to be a new production system for offshore natural gas development in the near future. The FLNG system is no proven technology and there is no FLNG operation, which can make it difficult to design FLNG. Furthermore, it is noted that FLNG designers can’t get enough information for the design.

Gas explosion is the technical problems for the topside facilities of FLNG. The objective of this paper is to study the gas explosion for the FLNG design.
