  2. Technical requirements and specifications for LNG bunker tankers and receiving vessels with regard to transfer system, fittings and safety equipment
  3. Safety standards for LNG bunkering operations
  4. Identification of safety exclusion zones and emergency procedures
  5. Competency standards for personnel handling LNG bunkering.


After the study is finalized, it will be shared with the maritime industry and feedback will be sought.
