The Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF) released the 1st edition of its LNG Bunkering Safety Guidelines yesterday. The goal of the document is to provide the bunkering industry with best practices in order to ensure that gas-fuelled ships are re-fuelled with high levels of safety, integrity, and reliability, the group said in a press release. 

The 82-page document was created by a working group featuring employees from the Swedish Marine Authority, Shell, MOL Group, Lloyd's Register, DNVGL, the Norwegian Maritime Authority, Alkane Marine and IAPH. 
SGMF is a new non-governmental organization promoting safety and industry best practices. The guidelines are free to all members.
