THE LNG TANKER AND CARGO--CONSIDERATIONS OF CASUALTY CIRCUMSTANCES AND SHIP SALVAGE

The recent history of casualties is examined to develop an understanding of the more likely circumstances that an LNG tanker may experience in accidents. A detailed evaluation is also made of recent accidents involving major tankers/bulk carriers and an extrapolation is attempted to projected circumstances had the cargo been LNG. Certain conclusions are presented with some recommendations for mitigation of an LNG casualty. Order from BSRA as No. 52,177.
