This 2-day interactive course provides a technically focused overview of LNG marine fuel vessel design, construction, safety and operations. This includes LNG fueled vessel design and construction criteria, current technical developments, safety and monitoring systems, gas fueled vessel  operations procedures and  precautions, LNG bunkering considerations, the risk assessment process, crew training and competence requirements and regulatory compliance. ABS Group has been instrumental in the development of LNG marine fuel safety, design criteria and technical guidance that ship owners, operators, designers and builders, as well as regulators, rely on in order to meet the exacting risk management and safety considerations for adoption of LNG as a marine fuel. Published guidance, including the IGF Code, STCW Training and Competence standard, USCG Policy Letters and ABS publications, ABS LNG Technical and Operational Advisory, LNG Bunkering in North America will be the source of some of the course material, but ABS’s practical experience, knowledge and lessons learned from actual LNG marine fuel projects and ongoing involvement at the forefront of the LNG marine industry will form the backbone of the course.
