This joint publication by the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) and the Chemical Distribution Institute (CDI) provides clear recommendations and guidance for oil tankers, chemical tankers and dual classed oil/chemical tankers with the aim of achieving improved safety, standardisation and compatibility with terminal facilities.

It provides a significant amount of new tanker industry accepted recommendations on safety and equipment, including additional tonnage categories and recommendations for ship owners.

Areas covered include manifold position and design, working platform and spill containment, hose support, bunker connections, lifting equipment, deck fittings to facilitate hose handling at buoy moorings and connectors for ship/shore emergency shutdown equipment.

The Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) first published Standards for Oil Tanker Manifolds and Associated Equipment in 1971. The guidance was subsequently revised in a second edition, published in 1975, primarily to take account of changes in practice reflecting the increased usage of hard arms, the introduction of large diameter floating hoses at some Single Point Moorings (SPMs) and the increased frequency of lightering operations. Further revisions in 1981 and 1991 contained expanded recommendations on lifting equipment and vapour manifolds respectively as well as a new title Recommendations for Oil Tanker Manifolds and Associated Equipment.

This new publication, the first edition of Recommendations for Oil and Chemical Tanker Manifolds and Associated Equipment supersedes the earlier titles. It takes account of the many years of industry experience with the previous guidance and builds on the earlier recommendations.

OCIMFThe Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) is a voluntary association of oil companies with an interest in the shipment and terminalling of crude oil, oil products, petrochemicals and gas. OCIMF focuses exclusively on preventing harm to people and the environment by promoting best practice in the design, construction and operation of tankers, barges and offshore vessels and their interfaces with terminals.
