These guidelines define and cover the additional risks associated with bunkering LNG and propose a methodology to deal with those additional risks, in order to provide a similar level of safety as that which exists for traditional oil fuel bunkering operations.

 

They are designed to complement and expand on existing regulations and guidelines. In particular, the following topics are addressed:

 

• The responsibility of different parties involved in the LNG transfer

• the LNG bunkering process

• SIMOPS

• safety distances

• QRA and HAZID.

LNG bunkering is developing worldwide in line with the increase of use of natural gas as a fuel compliant with environmental legislation.

 

This guideline provides recommendations for the responsibilities, procedures and equipment required for LNG bunkering operations and sets harmonised minimum baseline recommendations for bunkering risk assessment, equipment and operations.

 

These guidelines do not consider commercial aspects of the bunker transfer such as Bunker Delivery Notes and measurement of quantity or quality of LNG.
