Guidance for LNG Carriers: Transiting the Panama Canal

When compiling this Guide, SIGTTO and the ACP referred to relevant ACP regulations in force at such time, as well as to SIGTTO guidance, industry standards and best practices. However, users of this Guide should be aware that if new regulations or requirements are deemed necessary for the safe transit of any vessels (or more specifically LNG carriers) in the future, the ACP may implement them at any time.


This Guide also contains guidance on safety, minimum equipment levels and what might be considered to be good operating practices. This Guide is not a substitute for consulting the up to date applicable regulations and legislation (both national and international). For the avoidance of doubt, where such regulations and/or legislation conflict with the guidance in thisGuide, such regulations and/or legislation shall always be followed in preference to this Guide.


This Guide is only applicable to LNG carriers that transit the Panama Canal via the Cocoli and Agua Clara locks and, notwithstanding the content of this Guide, the ACP may modify the transit requirements for LNG carriers at any time.
