At Energía Costa Azul, safety is a top priority. In 2013, the LNG terminal received the "safe company" certification by Mexico’s State Labor Department in Baja California for increasing safety awareness in the workplace and complying with Mexican officials norms related to health and safety.
Sophisticated alarms and multiple back-up safety systems, which include emergency shutdown (ESD) systems, are core components of the Energía Costa Azul LNG facility. ESD systems can identify problems and shut down operations, limiting the amount of LNG that could be released. These systems are linked to automatic gas, liquid and fire detection equipment.
