A Safety Assurance Assessment Model for an Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Tanker Fleet
1 Malaysian Maritime Academy, Malacca, Malaysia

ABSTRACT: With the world?s attention on future energy needs focused on LNG; the unprecedented growth phase and globalization era of LNG Shipping activities are inevitable.Along with that the acute shortage of qualified /experienced LNG Sea Officers to manage, operate and maintain the existing and upcoming LNG Tankers is a crucial issue to LNG Shipping Industry as they are the onsite guardian that safeguard and set the standards for the onboard HSSE Assurance. Hence the write-up is an attempt to recommend a recently developed (tailor-made), tested/proven, practical and cost effective solution i.e a Survey Questionnaire based rapid Safety Assurance Assessment Model to safeguard, sustain and further improve any LNG Tanker?s Safety Assurance. The Assessment Model was crafted out after an in depth and width study/research into existing and potential future Safety Regimes applicable to an LNG Tanker (including its current Management Approach (Internal Control) ? challenges ahead, needs to reform, etc.).The Assessment Model has also taken into consideration the foreseen challenges from the ?humans on-site? with reference to already seen and proven historical perspective and impact of human behaviors onto an LNG Tanker?s Safety Assurance.
