The workshop focused on providing the attendees with an in-depth understanding of Coast Guard liquefied gas carrier examinations. More importantly, the workshop afforded numerous opportunities for open dialogue and an information exchange between local Coast Guard marine examiners, Flag State and Class Surveyors in order to raise the awareness on key safety issues and common deficiencies.
The training covered the chemical and physical properties of LNG, to include flammability, lower explosive limit, compression, cryogenic characteristics, and the general arrangement of LNG Carriers and their safety systems and cargo operations.
