Managing the Bunkering and Use of LNG Fuel on Ships


Introduction:

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 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 into the means to comply with that code

Targeted Groups:

  • Senior Management with high-level responsibility for vessel operations
  • Fleet Managers
  • Technical Managers
  • Vessel personnel
  • Personnel at the vessel/ bunker facility interface

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Understand why using LNG fuel can be beneficial
  • Manage the use of LNG fuel on ships
  • Communicate with bunker terminals and suppliers
  • Manage any emergencies involving LNG fuel
  • Understand the different fuel system configurations

Targeted Competencies:

  • Design and operational characteristics of ships subject to the IGF Code
  • Precautions to minimize and manage hazards on a ship subject to the IGF Code
