This publication addresses safety issues for LNG ports. It focuses on eliminating spillages at both the ship/shore interface and navigational approach channels.

It looks at issues that can be resolved while the port is being designed, which may be of benefit to harbour planners and port authorities. The book outlines the way forward for site selection of LNG terminals, establishes a basis for safe jetty design and considers the safety factors in the port approach. It also looks at the existing industry guidelines that cover cargo operations at the ship/shore interface.

This book is aimed at port developers as a guide to the minimum design criteria required when a port is built or altered in order to accommodate LNG carriers.
