Introduction to the properties and behaviour of LNG
  • Ray Gillett - General Manager, GTT Training
more

This session will provide a background to the key physical characteristics of LNG. Learn how LNG behaves in different conditions to better understand how this can influence design, safety and operational decisions when using LNG as a fuel for ships.

  • What is LNG? Introduction to the composition of liquid natural gas
  • Optimum conditions for LNG: understanding the impact of temperature and pressure on LNG
  • Methane number and LNG energy content compared to traditional marine fuels

Safety and regulation
  • David Haynes - Consultant and Technical Director, SOCIETY FOR GAS AS A MARINE FUEL (SGMF), Penguin Energy
more

The cryogenic and flammable nature of LNG makes ensuring safety during design and operations of the utmost importance. Understand potential safety hazards, how they can be avoided and what the regulations and guidelines state.

• Learning the safety and structural risks of using a cryogenic

• Gas detection and control systems

• Safety considerations of LNG and gas containment systems

• Minimising venting

• Preparing for the risk of cryogenic spills

14:15 - 15:00 45 mins
IGF code and LNG vessel design
  • Ray Gillett - General Manager, GTT Training
more

Learn the implications of the developing IGF code on all aspects ensuring safety during the design of LNG fuelled vessels. Align this knowledge with an understanding of the commercial implications of design including how much space LNG tanks take up on different vessel types and the implications this has on vessel payload for different applications.

• Fuel system arrangement

• Bunkering system location

• Control system and safety mechanisms

• Safety/firefighting systems

• Tank location and implications on vessel payload

• Retrofit considerations and examples

LNG containment: pressurised and non-pressurised storage systems
  • Ray Gillett - General Manager, GTT Training
more

The properties of LNG require methods of fuel storage new to traditional shipping. The containment system chosen can greatly impact design, and the operation of the LNG fuelled ships. This session explores the ways in which LNG tanks vary and what to look for to ensure optimum compatibility for each vessel’s operations.

• Overview of shape, fabrication and pressure of tanks

• Understanding the operational implications of pressurised and no pressurised containment systems: how does this compare to operations using traditional marine fuels?

• Understanding key differences between the available on board storage tanks

17:00 - 17:30 30 mins
Debriefing session
