In 2007, SIGTTO set up a series of working groups to bring together the LPG Shipping experience that was held within its membership onboard fully pressurised, Semi-pressurised/semi-refrigerated and fully refrigerated LPG Carriers and Ethylene Carriers. These standards have been collated into this book and were formally adopted by the SIGTTO board in May 2008.

Approved by SIGTTO, (Society of International Gas Tankers and Terminal Operators) this book is an essential companion to anyone serving on an LPG Carrier or any operator who has LPG Carriers or Ethylene Carriers within their fleet. This publication is presented in an easy read tabular format with the deck and engine officer ranks concerned being: - Deck Management - Deck Operational - Cargo Equipment - Management - Cargo Equipment - Operational This publication builds on the substantial competency related work that has been done by SIGTTO in the LNG sector and provides guidance on the minimum standards to which Officers should be trained and reference to the knowledge that underpins it. The standards were written using the competence based methodology, used in STCW and throughout the industry generally. These competency standards are intended to be used to ensure a common standard of minimum training throughout the industry.

In 2006, SIGTTO published a set of standards for the LNG shipping industry, a move that was welcomed by members, but that created a demand for a similar set of standards for the LPG Industry.

LPG shipping, while a more ‘mature’ market when compared to LNG, continues to expand and remains a critically important part of the Shipping Industry. The issues and challenges of LPG shipping need to remain at the front of the industry’s mind if it is to maintain its excellent safety record.

This set of standards will form the default minimum for best practice. We believe that they can and should be built upon by operators, who are encouraged to develop additional appropriate standards for their own operations and ships. We also believe that these standards should be improved upon or adapted where necessary to provide standards that are truly relevant and usable.

In early 2007, SIGTTO set up a new working group to tap into the experience that was held within its membership. The standards that emerged from that exercise have been collated into this book and were formally adopted by the SIGTTO board in Athens on the 14th May 2008. They have been written using the ‘competence based methodology’ that is widely used in STCW and the industry in general.

As a guidance document, this set of standards is not, and cannot be considered mandatory. However, we do believe that they represent current best practice for operational training standards for Officers and so they should at least be considered for adoption by the individual or the company.

The purpose of SIGTTO is to promote shipping and terminal operations for liquefied gases which are safe, environmentally responsible and reliable. To fulfil this mission it will:

  • Proactively develop best operating practices and guideline

  • Sustain a learning environment by sharing lessons learned

  • Promote training and development of all within the industry

  • Foster mutually beneficial relationships with regulatory authorities and other stakeholders

  • Conduct its business with professionalism and integrity
