This guide provides information on effective maintenance of critical items of equipment for both oil and liquefied gas terminal jetties. It advises on possible failure modes for each item of equipment and also discusses proactive and reactive maintenance strategies.

Reliable equipment at the jetty is vital for safe transfer of cargo between the ship and shore.

Maintenance of this equipment is particularly important because of the harsh environmental conditions often experienced.

This guide provides information on the basic function, failure, inspection, maintenance and repair of all the key equipment items and systems. It is not intended to provide guidance on safety management procedures or to replace
the manufacturers’ instruction manuals. However, it is designed to provide a description of a typical jetty and the likely faults that may occur if maintenance work is not carried out regularly.
