The following article consists of excerpts from the Coast Guard publication "Liquefied Natural Gas and Liquefied Petroleum Gas, Views and Practices, Policy and Safety" (CG-478), which was recently revised to present current U.S. Coast Guard views, practices and policies for the transportation by water of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). This publication answers a number of questions frequently asked by those interested in water transportation of these important bulk cargoes. It covers the properties and hazards of LNG and LPG, LNG and LPG carriers, operational controls and facilities, and personnel training and qualifications, and includes a question and answer section and recommendations for selected readings in the event a more thorough and technical knowledge of LNG and LPG is desired.
