The great demand for energy in the world today is causing a rapid expansion of ocean movements of LNG. As more ships go into operation on a global scale, shipyards and Marine Chemists in many parts of the world will be called upon to certify LNG ships to be "gas free" for shipyard entry. This paper reviews various types of cargo containment systems, cargo handling systems and describes various operating procedures. It gives the acceptable limits for each operation which the authors have found to be attainable, practical and safe. The authors were closely connected with the Alaska to Japan LNG project and this paper reflects some of the operating experience gained at that time.
