To meet the needs of systematic analysis in emergency response plan for natural gas leakage on an offshore platform, a six-dimensional system methodology is presented by integrating Hall three-dimensional morphology and the Wu, Shi, and Ren approach (Arthur, 1969). On the basis of synthesizing the content and thinking of the two system methodologies, content and its thinking redundancy between the methodologies are eliminated, part of original dimensions is retained, and new dimensions and relationships among dimensions are extended. Natural gas leakage on an offshore platform is a high-risk and strong chain-reaction accident, greatly affected by marine meteorological factors, so there needs to be good coordination and dynamic adjustment in the disposal process. The research framework and thinking for developing the emergency response plan are proposed by using the integrated methodology.
