This publication explores the stages of a tanker voyage from the initial due diligence process when chartering a tanker, through to arrival and pre-transfer formalities, cargo operations and emergency preparedness. It provides terminal operators, Port Authorities, and tanker crews with a general understanding of each party’s operation and their responsibilities.

This book provides detailed guidance covering every stage of a ship’s visit to a tanker jetty. Topics covered include:

  • Tanker, port and terminal equipment and regulations
  • arrival and prearrival operations
  • cargo management (including for specialised cargoes)
  • survey and sampling procedures
  • emergency response
  • pollution prevention.

This revised edition is aimed at both new entrants to the industry and experienced personnel aiming to refresh their knowledge. It condenses the latest industry best practice into one comprehensive publication that is a valuable addition to any jetty office, tanker cargo control room or college library.

The ship/shore interface can be considered the most critical part of cargo and bunkering operations. The tanker and the terminal may be unfamiliar with each other’s equipment, procedures and personnel, yet within a short period of time they must work together to ensure the safe transfer of dangerous cargoes.

This publication seeks to provide terminal operators, Port Authorities and tanker crews with a general understanding of each party’s operation and their responsibilities. It explores the stages of a tanker voyage from the initial due diligence process when chartering a tanker, through to arrival and pre-transfer formalities, cargo operations and emergency preparedness. Throughout this voyage, every check and agreement mentioned in the ISGOTT Ship Shore Safety Checklist (SSSCL) is explored to provide the reader with an overview of the accountability and responsibility the terminal and tanker accept when completing the checklist.

This revised edition is aimed at both new entrants to the industry and experienced personnel aiming to refresh their knowledge. It condenses the latest industry best practice available at the time of publication into an easy reference publication that is a valuable addition to any jetty office, tanker cargo control room or college library.

    A must-have title on every tanker, terminal, tanker operator office and training centre

    Tankers visiting terminals and terminals receiving tankers poses a lot of challenges, as both parties may not be fully aware of the other’s capabilities or limitations. “Tanker Jetty Safety – Management of the Ship/Shore Interface” revised by Capt Duncan Bruce AFNI provides a comprehensive step-by-step insight into how best to manage this important safety critical interface. The title is addressed to a wide readership. It covers operations of all types of tankers on all sorts of terminals from the commencement to completion of the visit/operation. In this industry – and particularly the tanker segment – where safety and environmental risks are ever-present, such a title helps the readers with the preparations and necessary actions at various stages of the interface. In this truly global industry, where the seafarers and terminal operators come from different backgrounds and have many different languages. Such professionals need to be competent at what they do. This title helps with this beautifully by providing simple to read text supported by graphics and pictures. It is a fact that guidance from industry bodies is updated regularly, e.g., ISGOTT revision to new editions. Such a title clearly helps to align with such revised developments. Where the title does this with the level of clarity used in this book, then readers would find it useful to know about the requirements by following the easy to read and understand text based on step-by-step instructions, which not only helps them learn the right content, but also helps them develop reasoning as to why the actions are necessary in the sequence suggested. This is clearly a must-have title on every tanker, terminal, tanker operator office, training centre, and even for the seafarers working on tankers. Having spent over a decade on different types of tankers and being involved with tanker training for over two decades, I strongly recommend this book for all personnel involved. This is clearly a 5-star title in its category.
