RISK ANALYSIS AND ITS APPLICATION TO SHIPS AND SHIP TRANSPORT

For the purposes of this paper, "risk" is defined as the probability of a defined unwanted event in any plant, system or activity. The methods used in risk analysis and decision making are then reviewed and applied to the problem of whether or not to install an inert gas system on board a crude oil tanker. Risk measurement, estimation, extrapolation and prediction are discussed for the case of the importation of LPG by gas carriers to the new Norwegian petrochemical complex at Rafnes. Order from BSRA as No. 49,104.
