LNG & LPG Cargo Inspection

Introduction

What is LNG?
Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons which, when liquefied, form a clear colorless and odorless liquid; this LNG is usually transported and stored at a temperature very close to its boiling point at atmospheric pressure (approximately – 160 degree C).
LNG is very cold liquid form of natural gas - the fuel that's burned in gas stoves, home heaters, and electric power plants. When it warms back up, LNG becomes natural gas again. You can't liquefy natural gas without cooling it. Many countries export and many others import LNG by ship; the United States does both.
What is LPG?
Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG) – these are mainly propane and butane, shipped either separately or in mixtures. They may be refinery by product gases or may be produced in conjunction with crude oil or natural gas.
The surveyor of LNG/LPG cargoes should test and inspect:

  • Custody Transfer Inspection, including Reporting of Energy Calculations
  • Master Sales Agreement (MSA) Contract Review and Consultation
  • LNG Tank Caklibration (Vessel & Shore Tanks)
  • Vessel CTMS Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT Inspection for new builds)
  • Vessel CTMS Site Acceptance Testing (SAT Inspection for new builds)
  • Re-Certification of Vessel CTMS Equipment (for existing fleet)…

Our course is fully covering these areas and more.

Course Content

Because the liquefied gas trade surveying is somewhat unusual compared with other bulk liquefied cargo surveying, it demands an understanding of the par ticular terminology. It should be recognized that due to the nature of the trade, technology moves ahead at a fairly rapid pace and equipment is modified or updated regularly that’s what you will learn from this course.
