DETERMINATION OF PROBABILITY OF MARINE ACCIDENTS WITH RESPECT TO GAS CARRIERS PROCEEDING IN DUTCH COASTAL AND INLAND WATERS

Accident and traffic data for the period 1963-1974 was used as the basis for the maritime risks involved in the coastal and port navigation of LNG carriers calling at Dutch ports. First the accident data of Rotterdam and its approaches were investigated. This area was selected because of its high traffic density and the variety of vessels calling there. As only 70 accidents had occurred, the possibilities for extensive analyses were limited. Consequently each accident was analyzed in depth with regard to its circumstances and causes.
