This book provides guidance for shipowners and operators who are new to LNG ship operation. It highlights the relevant statutory requirements for training LNG tanker crews and draws on the experience of SIGTTO member companies who have extensive operating expertise in this area.

The book outlines current practice in LNG ship management companies, particularly in relation to training and experience, and looks at the operational risks involved in gas tanker and terminal operations that arise from transport, storage and transfer of LNG and petroleum gas. Gas terminals are often sited within established ports, meaning that the operations of the port and gas terminals serving them have a common operational environment. This means that the industry members have gained invaluable experience in carrying out gas operations in a port environment.

This guide draws heavily on SIGTTO’s Information Paper 14, first published in 1997. The paper expounds a doctrine of protective location for gas terminals, and argues that, to eliminate the major risk elements, gas operations should be located in areas where there is no exposure to uncontrolled threats from outside their operating environment.

Operators require both a systematic assessment of operating risk and a range of risk reduction measures that can be tailored to specific situations. The guidance and information provided in this book aims to satisfy these needs.
