Introduction  

The knowledge of commercial and technical risks in the end-to-end LNG supply chain and operations is a must for all players that are involved or looking to be involved in the LNG industry, specifically for those who pursue a career in the LNG sectors.

This EuroMaTech training course will extensively cover LNG Operations, Measurements, Custody and Control transfers of LNG Cargo including Loading and Unloading LNG operations at Terminals, LNG on Tankers, Chemical and LNG Gas carriers, LNG Carrier and Management of Ship Shore operations, Role and responsibilities of LNG Loading, LNG Cargo documentation and LNG Calculations.

Participants on EuroMaTech’s Advanced LNG Operations, Measurements, Custody Transfers and Cargo Claims training course will develop the following competencies:  

  • Identify improved procedures for the handling, loading and discharging of LNG
  • Learn updated international LNG guidelines and regulations concerning LNG tankers and terminals including the LNG physical properties and types of LNG/LPG cargoes
  • Understand LNG Quality & Quantity risk & loss and learn prevention techniques
  • Improve LNG compliance, safety and environmental performances
  • Learn the technical aspects of pumps and pipeline systems including LNG loading and discharge operations
Who Should Attend?  

EuroMaTech’s Advanced LNG Operations, Measurements, Custody Transfers and Cargo Claims training course is suitable for all personnel who desire to be responsible for or enter into LNG loading, discharging and custody transfer, and handling LNG cargoes especially;

  • LNG operators
  • LNG handlers
  • LNG vessel owners and operators
  • LNG surveyors
  • LNG marine superintendents.

The training course is also beneficial for those involve in the Liquid and Gas Facility/Tanker and LNG Cargo transportation business including:

  • Liquid/Gas and LNG suppliers, traders and distributors
  • LNG Superintendents and safety officers
  • LNG Technical and operations executives
  • LNG Charterers and traders
  • LNG Ship brokers
  • LNG Port and terminal operators
  • LNG P&I club and marine insurance
Programme Objectives  

EuroMaTech’s Advanced LNG Operations, Measurements, Custody Transfers and Cargo Claims training course will cover:

  • Advanced Technical Aspects of LNG Operations
  • Practical and Commercial Considerations in Liquid and Gas Operations
  • LNG Pre-Fixture Activities (Voyage Planning and LNG Cargo Management)
  • Custody Transfer Measurement and Calculations
  • LNG Cargo Transportation
  • LNG Terminal Operations
  • Liquid and Gas Fiscal metering
  • LNG Product Quality Assurance
  • LNG Ship to Facility and LNG Terminal interface and operations
  • LNG Tanker Loading and Discharge Procedures
  • LNG Product Quality Custody Transfer Measurement
  • LNG Metering Parameters, Techniques and Calculations
Training Methodology  

EuroMaTech’s Advanced LNG Operations, Measurements, Custody Transfers and Cargo Claims training course is presented using challenging tutor marked assignments, and in-depth case studies. The trainer uses factual case studies and exercises along the way to cement participants’ newly acquired skills and helps them apply them to real situations. Equally as important, a look at the mind-set of LNG project managers, and LNG marine engineers is given through the discussions, thus giving participants an additional boost in anticipating potential problems and correcting them beforehand.

Programme Summary  

EuroMaTech’s Advanced LNG Operations, Measurements, Custody Transfers and Cargo Claims training course is specifically designed to assist those involved in LNG operations whether on or offshore. The training ensures your LNG operational processes and workforce perform up to the LNG current standards, whilst also gaining a competitive advantage. Participants will learn about entire Liquid/Gas and LNG process chain; see the latest advances in cargo transfer operations from both a Liquid and Gas ship management and LNG terminal/Facility perspective. They will be able to make accurate measurements and calculations of LNG Gas custody transfers, and product quality accuracy; examine the design codes and guidelines on Liquid and Gas ship and shore transfer management; and examine real LNG Case Studies from around the Globe concerning Liquid and Gas incidents.
