Abstract The paper provides information on the use of liquefied natural gas and distribution in Europe and worldwide. Paper has information displayed on the largest liquefied natural gas exporter and importing countries. View of liquefied natural gas transit, storage statistics and specific features in urope is provided. Has been studied accident statistics in the world linked with liquefied natural gas, as well as the analysis has been made of the most frequent causes of accidents. During this research, calculations was carried out assessing the possible fire of liquefied natural gas (hereinafter LNG) in order to assess its consequences and prevalence, as well as assessing the potential impact of atmospheric in fire spread, also calculations were made to assess the blast wave spread. Other calculations were made in connection with LNG low temperatures and effects that could appear by inhaling evaporated LNG vapours. Research summarizes some of the most important occupational health and safety risks associated with the LNG storage, accidents and leak consequences, as well as offering some propositions of solving these problems.
