Workshop Overview

This course will enable participants to gain an understanding of the concerns of ship and shore staff, when handling liquefied gases in bulk. The course will cover the application of legislation and guidelines related to the transport of the various liquefied gas cargoes. The chemical and physical properties and hazards will be identified as well as safe handling techniques. Ships’ equipment used in the conditioning of the various cargoes will be detailed within the context of a cargo cycle. The course will include a practical session involving charting the physical properties of a cargo during a re-liquefaction sequence. Non-mariners involved in the administration and management of liquefied gas transport will benefit from a practical knowledge of these aspects.
