Description: Introduction
This document provides recommendations on the layout, strength and fittings for gas carrier manifolds. This
version is an update to the previous edition of 'Manifold Recommendations for Liquefied Gas Carriers (2011Y).
Scope
These recommendations are for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carriers and liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.
For the purposes of this document, the term LPG carrier refers to liquefied gas cargoes carried between the
temperature range of 0°C to -104°C
These recommendations do not apply to existing ships, and there is no suggestion that existing ships should be
altered.
It is recognised that some new gas carrier designs may not be able to conform to all of the recommendations
in this document, however, this document is intended to serve as a starting point with a view to minimising
differences as much as possible
