The content of the present publication contains professional assessment of all matters related to the transportation of the LNG, i.e. liquefied natural gas. The authors of the volume have identified nine major areas of concern and each of them has been given close attention. Subject areas will be of concern to United States Congress in connection with the new legislation in the field, oversight of the official Federal entities assigned responsibilities of the liquefied natural gas systems etc.
Five of those areas are actually concerned with the established procedures and existing equipment for the facilities in operation. The regulatory changes in those areas are applicable to the ongoing processes. The five areas include tanker operations and regulations, regulation of the terminal operations, design and construction of the tankers, safety research. and the process of making decisions relating to certification of the projects. The other four areas feature long range implications. They typically affect the facilities and policies relating to the future projects and include reliability of supplies, facility sighting, liability for the accidents, and pricing policy.
