PC – We don’t have that information

NW – Then how were the heat radiation figures modelled?

PC – Using fireball model

NW – For 345 bar?

PC – Yes

NW – What testing was done for 345?

PC – Testing not done for 345, used UK HSE models

NW – Has 345 been verified?

Thanks for the prιcis; we would appreciate more of the Oral Hearing if possible.
So, in the event of disaster, the horrendous consequences would be unforeseeably catastrophic for people, life, & lands in the vicinity of unspecified miles radius, continue for unknown time, & be unprovided for.....which is what local people have been warning for many years. But don't mind that, it will make some people a lot of money!
