    The publication has been written primarily for serving ships’ officers and terminal staff who are responsible for cargo handling operations, but also for personnel who are about to be placed in positions of responsibility for these operations.  Its appeal extends also to many others, not directly involved in the operational aspects of the industry, who require a comprehensive and ready reference for technical aspects of their businesses. Liquefied Gas Handling Principles emphasises the importance of understanding the physical properties of gases in relation to the practical operation of gas-handling equipment on ships and at terminals.

     

    In the sixteen years since this publication was last updated, the liquefied gas shipping and terminal industry has undergone considerable change. This revision reflects these changes which include, but are not limited to, vessel design, propulsion systems, size of fleet, floating regasification and reliquefaction, Arctic LNG, containment systems, efficiency increases in vessel operations, vessel capacities, technology, best practice and legislation.

     

    This title incorporates 'Quantity Calculations LPG and Chemical Gases, 2nd Edition' (SIGTTO).
