The Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) import terminal and storage facility is owned by NG who are responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of the site. It is classified as a Top Tier site under the Control of Major Accident Hazards (CoMAH) Regulations 2015. The original facility was a peak shaving LNG storage plant, but this was converted to an importation terminal in 2005 with subsequent expansion to the facility taking place in 2008 and 2010.

Our Appointment

NG looked to SRC to provide competent advice during the early tendering phases of each of the three key phases of work and in particular to support them as ‘client’ with interpreting the requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM).

  • Development of a CDM Strategy Plan that set out the framework for the project delivery.
  • Support with the preparation of NG CDM documentation:
  • Pre-construction Information Pack.
  • SHE HAZID form.
  • CDM Pre-start form.
  • Review and advice for improvements to existing CDM health and safety file.
  • Review and advice for improvements to Schedule 4 (Health & Safety), section 3 (CDM).
  • Advice during contractor evaluation.
  • Preparation of the Re-Life Construction Phase Plan.

Adding Value

Due to previous similar project experience SRC were able to quickly and cost effectively provide a dedicated consultant to the NG project team to act as the sole point of contact to ensure timely and consistent advice was provided.  Further support was identified and provided through a series of CDM awareness sessions to key NG project personnel as a refresher exercise during the early FEED stages of the project to ensure the understanding of duty holder roles for design and principal designer with particular attention being drawn to those relating to application of the Principles of Prevention.
