Description: Substantial work has been undertaken to ensure that the basics of liquefied gas carriage at sea can be understood by every reader, regardless of their experience to date.
In addition to coverage of course requirements, the text provides additional information, particularly in the important areas of cargo calculation and operational procedure.
For absolute clarity, and to highlight the different practices in the LNG and LPG trades, certain operations have been shown separately.
This book is a joint publication from Seamanship International and Witherbys Publishing.
