During the period 24-27 July MSI Newport conducted Shiphandling training for three Trinidad Pilots for the Point Fortin LNG Terminal. Captain Bill Mackay was the Instructor/Facilitator. This course uses a data base model of the Point Fortin LNG Terminal created by MSI, and is designed to hone the pilots skill in bringing various sizes of LNG carriers into Point Fortin and alongside the LNG Terminal there. The course places the pilots in difficult environmental and emergency situations. This program was tailored to specific company operations and objectives.
