"Gas Astray" is a safety education programme with a theoretical and a practical training module complementing each other.

The objective is to provide operating personnel with knowledge about hydrocarbons and the consequences of a release, especially emphasi-zing on natural gas under high pressure.

A training field is being built at the Karst0 termi-nal on the west coast of Norway, where releases of various hydrocarbons can be made. Gas relea-ses from storage pressure of 100 bar will be made unignited as well as ignited, producing vertical or horizontal flames up to about 60 m or more.

Various types of releases will be demonstrated and fire fighting training on different objects will be available.
