The Tanker Safety Guide: Liquefied Gas, 3rd Edition, is the definitive industry best practice guidance for gas carrier operators, and a carriage requirement under the national regulations of many flag States.
This fully illustrated 500-page reference book covers every aspect of the safe handling of bulk liquid gases (LNG, LPG and chemical gases) on board ships and at the ship/shore interface at terminals. It is indispensable for personnel training for operational qualifications as well as those already engaged in liquefied gas operations.
This revised edition of SIGTTO’s book describes the importance of the vetting of LNG ships as a risk assessment tool. Laid out as a specialised guide it incorporates an overview of the trade of LNG by sea, covers technical aspects of LNG ships relevant to vetting and describes the current vessel clearance processes. It also details the use of the SIRE vessel inspection questionnaire for assessing risk and includes up to date industry best practices and recommendations.
These guidelines provide recommendations for the responsibilities, procedures and equipment required for LNG bunkering operations and sets harmonised minimum baseline recommendations for bunkering risk assessment, equipment and operations.
