This paper describes a risk based review and assessment of the emergency preparedness plan of a fleet of LNG carriers and is based on a study carried out by DNV for Osprey Maritime.

The objective was to ensure that the emergency plans offered coverage for realistic risks and hazardous situations. The assessment aimed to identify the scenarios/situations that should be addressed in the emergency preparedness plan and on this basis identified discrepancies in the existing emergency planning.

Risk analysis methods wwere applied for this purpose. The risk matrix approach combining the likelihood of an event with its consequences (severity) into a risk level for each scenario proved to be an effective tool. The evaluation was carried out for seven consequence classes; crew, 3rd party personnel, environment, own property, down time, reputation and 3rd party assets. Qualitative likelihood and severity categories were established for each consequence class. Scenarios representing a significant risk for either of these classes should be reflected in the company's emergency planning. The paper outlines the methodology, the type of events included and how it was used as a valuable aid in the emergency preparedness planning. Limitations and potential opportunities are also addressed in the paper.
