Title: Shipping LNG: new regulations and the 1964-77 record

Abstract

A discussion covers the Port and Tanker Safety Act of 1978 which was signed into U.S. law 10/17/78, and its various special requirements for LPG or LNG shipments entering U.S. ports: a major report from Poten and Partners Inc. on the safety record of liquefied gas ships, which shows that the cargoes remained unaffected despite incidents common to all shipping; the potential effects of U.S. requirements for segregated ballast and for fixed inert gas systems, especially for U.S. fleets of ships largely more than 15 years old; and the media furor over the docking of the LPG carrier Cavendis.
