Terminal readiness

Terminals must also be prepared to deal with the risks of an LNG-fuelled vessel moored at the terminal.

The IAPH CMF workgroup will soon publish a guidance on procedural and operational preparedness of a terminal to assure a safe handling of LNG fuelled vessels, including a safe ship-to-ship LNG bunkering of the LNG fuelled vessel alongside the terminal.

This will enable terminals to qualify as “LNG-ready terminal”
