Coast Guard Issues Policy Guidance on LNG Bunkering Operations

The U.S. Coast Guard has released two policy letters to enhance the safety of LNG marine fuel transfer (bunkering) operations.  The first policy letter provides voluntary guidance to Coast Guard Captains of the Port/Officers in Charge, Marine Inspection (OCMI) on LNG fuel transfer operations on vessels using natural gas as fuel in U.S. waters, and training of personnel on those vessels.  The second policy letter discusses voluntary guidance to owners and operators of vessels and waterfront facilities on existing regulations applicable to vessels and waterfront facilities conducting LNG operations.
