DNV—GL — DEVELOPMENT AND OPERATION OF LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS BUNKERING FACILITIES
|D O W N L O A D|
DNV GL issued the present official Recommended Practice in 2015 to cover the development and operation of LNG bunkering facilities. Today, liquefied natural gas fuel is considered a viable option for vessels. It differs from the traditional marine fuels as it features low flash point and also cryogenic temperature. Note, however, that the LNG is not widespread as bunker fuel at the moment.
That is why it is absolutely necessary to have due understanding of all risks normally involved in bunkering operations using liquefied natural gases. The main purpose of this document was to establish required guidelines related to protection of the safety of crew members, property and the environment in the course of the development and operation of the bunkering facilities.
The authors tried to provide the industry with the required technical guidance addressing the organizational and technical issues as well as functional and operational matters to ensure the global compatibility and also to get to higher level of safety, reliability and integrity of above mentioned facilities. The safety management system is also covered within this book together with the risk management framework. Numerous appendices give some additional information.
