    Hydrocarbons continue getting out the box

    With a Fire breakout at Pernis and a leak at Singapore refinery, both incidents over the last few days, it seems loss of containment is a continuing serious issue both onshore as well as offshore.

    Much has been written about FLNG suggesting Prelude for example simply just cannot afford leaks and fires because of the potential consequences – but can they be totally avoided, can they?
    Can any offshore installation meet a zero tolerance standard for leaks? What do you think?
