With the completion of the Panama Canal (third set of locks) expansion project in June 2016, the majority of LNG carriers are now able to transit the Canal.

This Guide provides practical guidance on the ACP requirements, including pre-arrival procedures, security, navigation, pilotage, mooring, tugs, LNG cargo carriage, vapour management, propulsion systems, bridge visibility and contingency planning.

When compiling this Guide, SIGTTO and the ACP referred to relevant ACP regulations as well as to SIGTTO guidance, industry standards and best practices. It should be noted that this Guide is not a substitute for consulting the up-to-date applicable regulations and legislation (both national and international), which should always be followed in preference to this Guide.
