OCIMF RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MANIFOLDS FOR REFRIGERATED LNG CARRIERS
|D O W N L O A D|
This is the second edition of the very practically useful publication released by the recognized and authoritative OCIMF organization. The recommendations contained in the present volume were developed with the intention to promote conformity in the manifold arrangements on board LNG carriers and contribute to the operational efficiency. It will also help to better plan the loading and discharge positions on the newly introduced jetties.
The specification contained herein was prepared on the basis of the practical experience of the many operators and berth specialists, shipbuilders and naval architects, manufacturers of the equipment and other people engaged in the handling and transportation of the liquid natural gas. The content of the guidebook has already been very well met by the owners of the LNG vessels as well as the builders and they do not imply the alteration of any existing carrier.
In fact, these recommendations should be considered applicable to some of the LNG transporting vessels featuring the midship arrangement of the manifold. Eight chapters of the document cover the ship volume categories, cargo manifold position and specifications, bunker fuel connections and other important areas.
