This book highlights the risks associated with gas operations in port areas and sets out best practice guidelines covering port transit and gas transfer operations . It also considers terminal site selection and management of relations with port authorities and other stakeholders.

This book discusses the criteria influencing site selection for marine gas terminals and provides guidance on control of the main risk elements.

It acknowledges the dynamic nature of operating environments and the fact that risk profiles will change with time. Operators require both a systematic assessment of operating risk and a range of risk reduction methods that can be tailored to be effective in specific circumstances.

This book aims to satisfy both these requirements. It also looks at management of relations with the providers of port services, other port users and the wider social community of the port.
