A first output from one of six working groups having been written and compiled by a group of individuals from across the SGMF membership, the objective of the guidelines is to provide the bunkering industry with the best practices in order to ensure that gas- fuelled ships are re-fuelled with high levels of safety, integrity and reliability, SGMF said in a statement.

The LNG Bunkering – Safety Guidelines include chapters on LNG Hazards (Leaks, Cryogenic, LNG Fire and Explosion), Safety Systems (Roles, People in Charge, Communications and Emergency Systems), Bunkering Procedures (Before, During and After) and Specific Safety Guidance for Ship to Ship, Shore to Ship and Truck to Ship Bunkering.
