Site Selection & Design for LNG Ports & Jetties (IP no. 14)

Designed as a guide for port developers to the minimum design criteria for building or altering ports to accommodate LNG carriers. 


Bearing in mind the high consequential risks of a serious accident in the LNG trade, this publication has been prepared for port developers as a guide to the minimum design criteria when a port is built or altered to accommodate LNG carriers.


The publication looks at safety issues for LNG ports and focuses on eliminating spillages at both the ship/shore interface and navigational approach channels.
