This book is aimed at port developers as a guide to the minimum design criteria required when a port is built or altered to accommodate LNG carriers. It contains operational and design considerations before questioning these in the context of the human element. The consequences of collisions and groundings are studied and methods of limiting the effect of such accidents are offered.

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

The book outlines the way forward for site selection of LNG terminals, establishes a basis for safe jetty design and considers the safety factors in the port approach. It also considers the existing industry guidelines that cover cargo operations at the ship/shore interface. It is suggested that LNG’s excellent safety record is owing to the existing standards being adopted. As the industry becomes more widespread, continuing success will depend not only on better acceptance of the existing standards but also on future improvements. Some of the newer aspects are described and a checklist can be found in the appendix.
