    The Guide contains recommendations on safety, minimum equipment levels and good operating practices, but it is recognised that if more stringent international, national or local regulations apply, they must take precedence.

    This Guide is a required publication on the SIRE Vessel Inspection Questionnaires for Oil Tankers, Combination Carriers, Shuttle Tankers, Chemical Tankers and Gas Tankers.

     

    The guide is aimed at providing advise and assistance to Masters, Marine Superintendants and other personnel who may be involved in the planning and execution of STS operations.

    This industry guide provides recommendations on safety, minimum equipment levels and good operating practices for STS operations. It is a required publication on the SIRE Vessel Inspection Questionnaires (VIQ) for Oil Tankers, Combination Carriers, Shuttle Tankers, Chemical Tankers and Gas Tankers.

     

    This book supersedes:

     

    • Ship to Ship Transfer Guide (Petroleum) 4th Edition Published: in 2005
    • Ship to Ship Transfer Guide (Liquefied Gas) 2nd Edition Published: in 1995
    • LNG Ship to Ship Transfer Guidelines Published: in 201.1

     

    This book builds on the previous recommendations and recognises experience gained in the industry of STS transfer operations, including transferring chemical (MARPOL Annex II) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargoes. The guide is applicable to transfers involving all bulk liquid cargoes, but where specific recommendations relate to a particular cargo type these can be found in the appendices. For transfers involving Annex I cargoes, the guide supports the requirements and recommendations developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
