Liquefied gas carriers which are able to carry a large variety of products are becoming increasingly common. Many ships are not only designed to carry as many of the products listed in Chapter 19 of the IGC Code (Ref.1) as possible, but also for the carriage of products covered by the IBC Code (Ref.2). In addition, the carriage of some oil products such as light naphtha onboard gas carriers is intended and even combination carriers for the transport of liquefied gases, chemicals and oil products have been built.

The design of such ships involves problems concerning cargo compatibility, ship arrangement, the cargo containment system, and the compliance with the relevant requirements of the 1973/78 MARPOL and 1974 SOLAS Conventions. Some aspects of these problems will be discussed in this paper.
