Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry is very much a growth industry with both demand and supply likely to continue to increase in the short to medium term.  Much shore-based activity depends on the expedient and safe operation of the LNG tanker.  Office-based staff have little opportunity to engage with sea staff and even less to be given a comprehensive understanding of ship-board operations.

This PetroKnowledge training course incorporates the activities and concerns of the LNG tanker within the context of a dry dock to dry dock cargo cycle. Beyond this, each aspect of design and safe operation, including the operation of relevant machinery and equipment and the physics of LNG re-liquefaction will also be covered and included.

This training course will highlight

  • The properties and hazards of handling LNG
  • How design can enhance safe operation of LNG tankers
  • The stages of a cargo cycle
  • Preparation for dry dock and the first cargo after dry dock
  • Measures to protect the commercial interests of an LNG tanker owner
