About this Training Course

This 2-day training course aims to provide a comprehensive understanding on LNG marine terminal and the coordination of vessels with terminals. The course content will be adapted to suit the requirements of individual clients and can be designed to focus on either a loading or discharge terminal, though both can be included if required. This training course is intended to provide a detailed outlook on the design of LNG Carriers that may be encountered and cargo related operations that may be conducted at an LNG loading or discharging terminal.

After the completion of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Assess the various designs of LNG Carrier, including details of the containment and propulsion system options and the resulting operational requirements
  • Examine the underlying principles of the operations that need to be conducted
  • Comprehend the design and operation of the equipment required in the undertaking of those operations
  • Review details of the safety systems that are implemented throughout
  • Grasp the undertaking of cargo operations that may be conducted alongside an LNG Terminal

This training course is intended for those who may have a marine background, but who do not have much, if any experience of LNG vessels, and who will be taking up the role of coordinator between the vessel and terminal. The course will also be applicable to anybody who wishes to have a better understanding of LNG vessels and the operations they may conduct at an LNG loading or discharge terminal.  This course will greatly benefit but not limited to:
