One of the main objectives of the working group was to create harmonized LNG bunker checklists for known LNG bunkering scenarios. These checklists reflect the extra requirements of ports with regard to LNG bunkering operations in or near their port environment. By using bunkering checklists, a high level of quality and responsibility of the LNG bunker operators can be obtained.
Implementing harmonized bunker checklists in ports will also be of great benefit to the vessels (and their crew) bunkering LNG in other ports because it will reduce the potential confusion caused by having to comply with different rules and regulations in different ports.
The working group has developed three bunkering checklists for implementation in ports:
IAPH’s WPCI LNG working group has developed harmonized bunkering checklists for LNG operations in ports. Implemented harmonized bunker checklists will be of great benefit to the vessels bunkering LNG in different ports, as this will reduce the potential for confusion caused by having to comply with different rules and regulations in different ports.
