This document provides guidance on the requirements for testing the systems for handling LNG cargo, and its consequential BOG, using LNG loaded onto a vessel specifically for that purpose.

The scope is considered applicable for established membrane, spherical tank and SPB designs. However, it does not extend to novel or prototype designs, which may require specific additional testing. This document is not intended to be used as an operational procedure, but merely as an aide to preparing a specification for gas trials.
