This publication is a reference guide for operational and commercial staff in the LPG shipping and terminal industries. It is supported by photographs and diagrams that illustrate safe transportation and storage of gas odourants. It also includes a table that outlines material compatibility with ethyl mercaptan odourant.
These guidelines were produced following notification to the SIGTTO Secretariat of several potentially dangerous incidents involving odourants. Detail is given on personal, environmental and business risk management. The capabilities and limitations of odourant injection equipment are also included. These guidelines should be written into charter parties when shipboard odourisation is to take place.
