Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) announced that it will conduct intensive safety inspections of five LNG bases, which are national core infrastructure, from May 17 to June 13 in line with the 2023 Korea Safety Transition Intensive Safety Inspection Period.
Intensive safety inspection for Korea’s safety transition is a safety activity that discovers and improves risk factors centering on areas with high need for inspection in order to realize ‘a safer Korea with the people’, and has been conducted every year since 2015.
In this inspection, KOGAS selected 165 natural gas production and supply facilities centered on five LNG production bases nationwide (Pyeongtaek, Incheon, Tongyeong, Samcheok, and Jeju) and is carrying out intensive safety inspection activities.
In particular, in the case of LNG bases with high public interest, a joint inspection team participated by government departments, related organizations, and private experts was formed to inspect 92 facilities in 7 fields, including safety systems, structures, gas, firefighting, electricity, protection, and information and communication. An intensive inspection is being carried out.
Of the risk factors identified through this inspection, KOGAS will immediately take corrective action for minor risks, and will do its best in history management and follow-up measures for critical factors through input into the management system.
Meanwhile, CEO Choi Yeon-hye, who visited the Samcheok LNG production base and conducted a safety inspection on the 24th, said, “Safety is the top management principle that KOGAS must pursue. Let’s unite and do our best to supply natural gas safely and stably,” he said.
