The Coast Guard will hold two public meetings July 26, 2019, to hear input regarding the safe navigation and mooring of liquefied gas carriers in San Juan Harbor.
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.
Senior Coast Guard leaders and liquefied-gas-industry experts from around the country recently came together in Houston to discuss ways the maritime community can prepare for the increased use of liquefied gases, and gain a deeper understanding of the intricacies each party faces as they adapt to the continued growth of this multi-billion dollar industry in the maritime domain.
