An event that involves a release of gas from a pipeline or a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility and a) a death or personal injury necessitating in-patient hospitalization or b) estimated property damage, including cost of gas lost, of the operator or others, or both, of $50,000 or more. II. An event that results in an emergency shutdown of an LNG facility. III. An event that is significant, in the judgment of the operator, even though it did not meet the criteria of I or II. Historical totals may change as the Office of Pipeline Safety receives supplemental information on incidents.
