Fire/Explosion Investigation of LPG Dehydration System

A fire/explosion occurred at pipeline LPG Dehydration facility, and we were subsequently 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. Somehow, the accidental release of propane gas after the water was completely discharged resulted in the accident.
