Why Choose this Training Course? 

For all vessel operators the issue of environmental pollution is becoming increasingly problematic. The requirements to comply with MARPOL Annex 6 have made air pollution one of the areas which ship owners and operators will have to address. Using LNG as a fuel is one way to reduce airborne pollution from ships.  It also has different problems to address when operating a vessel with LNG on-board as a fuel. This PetroKnowledge training course is intended to highlight these issues and provide a means to manage them. The IGF code details the requirements of ships using LNG as a bunker fuel, and this PetroKnowledge training course will provide an insight to the means to comply with that code.

This training course will highlight:
