The LNG shipping industry has an exceptional safety record which must be maintained in parallel with industry developments.

The standards contained within this book are a guide for the industry and implementation is not mandatory. Functional statements are tailored to officer rank and supplementary checklists and appendices offer the knowledge that underpins these.

The standards were written using the competence based methodology, which is adopted within the STCW and throughout the industry in general. They should be used to ensure that a common standard of minimum training is present throughout the industry.

The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) shipping industry has an exceptional safety record. This is a record of which the industry can be very proud.


LNG shipping, at the beginning of the 21st century, is experiencing a period of expansion and change unlike anything the industry has seen in the past. This expansion is to be welcomed, however, it will also bring with it many issues and challenges to which the industry will have to respond or pre-empt in order to maintain its excellent safety record and ensure that the public has confidence in the transportation of LNG by sea.

One of the biggest issues will be ensuring that shortages of seagoing personnel, with experience of LNG ships, do not affect the ability to effectively man the expanding LNG fleet. In this respect, at present there is an absence of industry accepted operational training standards specifically for officers serving on LNG ships. Therefore, with a view to maintaining the quality of such officers, SIGTTO developed these LNG Operational Standards for officers with the intention of their being adopted as the industry’s default best practice standards. The standards are not considered to be incapable of improvement and SIGTTO encourages individual operators to consider any additional or more appropriate standards that may be suitable to their specific operations, ships or trades.

The project commenced in early 2005 with the first of a series of working groups utilising the experience within the SIGTTO membership. The standards were approved by the SIGTTO board in November 2005.

These standards have been written using the ‘competence based methodology’, which is used in STCW and throughout industry in general.
They are offered by SIGTTO as guidance to the industry and, as such, their adoption and implementation cannot be, and is not, mandatory. However, the standards are produced following consultation within the industry and are intended to represent the default best practice operational training standard for officers serving on board LNG ships.

They also apply to the specific rank, if carried. For example, some LNG ships do not carry electricians or cargo engineers.

The Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO) is an international body established for the exchange of technical information and experience, between members of the industry, to enhance the safety and operational reliability of gas tankers and terminals.
