Specifically, the study will include an analysis of the risks of a cascading failure of the LNG tanks aboard a ship. Rep. Bishop explained the need for the study by noting that a GAO study released earlier this year “raised more questions than it answered about the consequences of an accident or terrorist attack.” The joint press release is available via Congresswoman DeLauro’s website.
