LNG COURSE OUTLINE: LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS TECHNOLOGY IN MARINE TRANSPORTATION
This four week course meets daily, eight to five, five days a week. It is designed to give two levels of training to develop the following requirements: (1) Basic Training (two weeks) for all Unlicensed Crew Members in LNG fundamentals, ship construction, fire fighting, pollution prevention, emergency procedures, personnel safety. The objectives are to develop a working knowledge of metric units, cargo pump operation, disaster procedures and safety exercises, and fire fighting systems, and an understanding of basic hydrocarbon chemistry, chemical and physical properties of natural gas, simple gas laws, LNG ship construction, LNG cargo tank construction and instrumentation, the custody transfer system, inert gas plant operation, nitrogen gas systems, practices with respect to personnel safety, Coast Guard and IMCO regulations, and pollution hazards; and (2) Advanced Training (two weeks) for all Rated Deck and Engine Department Personnel in LNG cargo handling equipment, preparing cargo tanks, loading and discharging procedures, ballast systems, preparing cargo tanks for entry, cargo control consoles instrumentation, gas detection systems, engineering plant, and LNG terminal operation and safety. Objectives are to develop an understanding of the construction and operation of the vapor compressor, warm-up and boil-off heaters, LNG vaporizer and compressor room piping arrangements and controls, preparing cargo tanks, loading and discharging procedures, cargo and ballast voyage operations, preparing cargo tanks for entry, cargo control consoles, gas detection, engineering plant and dual fuel combustion control systems, terminal operations and safety; and to acquaint students with actual LNG liquefaction and vaporization, terminal operations, cargo handling systems and safety procedures. A list of course reading materials and a bibliography of seventeen references are included.
