These guidelines provide recommendations for the responsibilities, procedures and equipment required for LNG bunkering operations. They set harmonised minimum baseline recommendations for bunkering risk assessment, equipment and operations.

These guidelines define and cover the additional risks associated with bunkering LNG and propose a methodology to deal with those additional risks, in order to provide a similar level of safety as that which exists for traditional oil fuel bunkering operations.

They are designed to complement and expand on existing regulations and guidelines. In particular, the following topics are addressed:

  • The responsibility of different parties involved in the LNG transfer
  • the LNG bunkering process
  • SIMOPS
  • safety distances
  • QRA and HAZID.
