Guidelines on the ShipBoard Odourisation of LPG
A reference for both operational and commercial staff, for when shipboard odourisation is to take place.
This book of guidelines was produced after a number of incidents had been drawn to the attention of the SIGTTO secretariat. Each of these incidents involved potentially dangerous practices during the introduction, by ship's crew, of an odourant into unstenched LPG cargoes. These guidelines should be used as a reference, by both operational and commercial staff, in the LPG shipping and terminal industries. They are not intended as a design specification for odourant injection equipment. It has been recommended that these SIGTTO guidelines should be written into charter parties whenever shipboard odourisation is to take place.
