After fire/explosion occurred at pipeline LPG Dehydration facility, we were asked to investigate. The explosion and fire apparently occurred during a periodic draining operation where water was removed from the system by “blowing down” the separator boot using manual ball valves. We determined that the cause of the incident was due to the accidental release of propane gas after the water was completely discharged.
