Ship to Ship Transfer Guide for Petroleum, Chemicals and Liquefied Gases

BOCIMF001

This industry guide provides recommendations on safety, minimum equipment levels and good operating practices. If more stringent international, national or local regulations apply then they should take precedence. This guide is a required publication on the SIRE Vessel Inspection Questionnaires for Oil Tankers, Combination Carriers, Shuttle Tankers, Chemical Tankers and Gas Tankers. This book supersedes: - Ship to Ship Transfer Guide (Petroleum) 4th Edition published in 2005 - Ship to Ship Transfer Guide (Liquefied Gas) 2nd Edition published in 1995 - LNG Ship to Ship Transfer Guidelines published in 201.1 This book builds on the previous recommendations and recognises experience gained in the industry of STS transfer operations, including transferring chemical (MARPOL Annex II) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargoes. The guide is applicable to transfers involving all bulk liquid cargoes, but where specific recommendations relate to a particular cargo type these can be found in the appendices. For transfers involving Annex I cargoes, the guide supports the requirements and recommendations developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The guide is aimed at providing advice to Masters, Marine Superintendents and others including STS service operators and transfer organisers, who may be involved in planning and executing STS operations. Attention is also given to the effective planning of operations and areas that involve risk assessment. The guide does not cover STS transfer operations that are associated with offshore exploration and production activities.

Guidelines for the Design, Operation and Maintenance of Multi-Buoy Moorings

BOCIMF004

Multi Buoy Moorings (MBM) are common in the oil industry and are generally used in areas where the environmental conditions are moderate. While the information provided is primarily geared towards the initial planning, design and operation of new facilities, it may also be useful for reference when upgrading or evaluating existing berths or when replacing individual components. The scope of this publication embraces mooring and oil transfer equipment within the multi buoy berth, up to and including the Pipeline End Manifold (PLEM). Information regarding the subsea pipelines serving the PLEM is considered to be outside the scope and may be readily found in other publications The objective of this publication is to provide information and recommendations on good practice to assist with the development of site-specific requirements. Terminal operators and designers are encouraged to provide feedback to OCIMF on the content, and on any aspects that are not addressed, for proposed inclusion in subsequent editions of this publication.

Guide to Manufacturing and Purchasing Hoses for Offshore Moorings

BOCIMF005

This 5th edition reflects a major review and enhancement of the 4th edition for the purpose of providing technical recommendations and guidance to ensure the satisfactory performance of elastomer reinforced, smooth bore, oil suction and discharge hose commonly used at offshore moorings. The following are among the new or significantly changed topics that are included in this latest edition: - The guidance for Reeling Hose Systems are addressed for the first time with particular attention being given to the potential for hoses being subjected to crush loading - A commentary comparing the design and operating guidance of 'oil' hose and hose specifically designed for LPG is included to assist operators when considering hose used in the offshore transfer of LPG - The Safe Working Loads guidance for hose lifting lugs have been re-assessed based on the weights of Double Carcass Hoses equipped with typical fittings - The design specification for Double Carcass Hoses has been clarified, together with the guidance for leak detection - Acceptance tests include new guidance for material tests and the process for stiffness testing has been revised - The circumstances that prompt prototype tests have been clarified and new tests addressing materials, torsion, tensile loading, crushing and lifting lugs have been introduced into the prototype test programme. This programme now also includes guidance for the dynamic testing of prototype hoses. Metric units are used for all dimensions including nominal diameter and standard length Hoses constructed and tested in accordance with recommendations and guidance in this Guide may be stamped 'GMPHOM 2009'. GMPHOM 2009 consolidates: * Guide to Purchasing, Manufacturing and Testing of Loading and Discharge Hoses for Offshore Moorings 4th Ed (Publ 1991) * SPM Hose System Design Commentary (Publ 1993) Note/. The recommendations and guidance within this Guide shall not be construed as establishing standards or requirements for application to offshore equipment. OCIMF are not involved with any verification or quality control process relating to the manufacture and/or testing of hoses. OCIMF does not control or regulate in any way the stamping of 'GMPHOM 2009' on hoses and therefore, prospective purchasers are recommended to undertake a due diligence process to ensure that the hose specification is as claimed by the Manufacturer/Seller and that the specification is suitable for their intended application.

Clean Seas Guide for Oil Tankers
£24.95

Clean Seas Guide for Oil Tankers

BWITH003
The clean seas programme was introduced by the shipping industry to restrict the operational discharge of oil in to the sea by the retention of oil residues onboard. The Guide, which describes the procedures used to retain oil residues onboard, is intended to help shipboard personnel comply with the oil discharge limitations that are contained in Annex 1 of MARPOL. The 1973 MARPOL convention, as amended by its 1978 Protocol, is the international instrument controlling pollution from ships. Annex 1 of the convention, which contains regulations for the prevention of pollution by oil, came into effect in October 1983. Effective retention of oil onboard (R.O.B.) requires a thorough understanding of the procedure and the techniques required. This book is aimed at: - Owners and operators of oil tankers - Oil tanker crew - Governments, port authorities and terminal operators - Cargo shippers and cargo receivers OCIMF/ICS strongly recommend this guide.

Marine Terminal Management and Self Assessment (MTMSA)

BWITH022

The MTMSA process offers a standard framework for terminal operators to assess and improve their management systems. Self assessment can be used by terminal operators to verify that their management systems are comprehensive and promote safety and environmental excellence, and to ensure that any risks have been identified, analysed and reduced to a level that is as low as reasonably practicable.

Terminal operators can use their assessment results to develop a plan to continuously improve safety and environmental performance and transfer best practice across their operations through the consistent application of enhanced processes and procedures.

This document includes best practice guidance based on current international legislation and recognised industry guidelines and codes of practice. In addition, in the online version, supplementary information will be available via a ‘Help’ facility to assist users when completing the assessment.

Pumproom Safety Information
£1.80

Pumproom Safety Information

BWITH026
A number of serious casualties have occurred in recent years involving fires and explosions within cargo pumprooms and have resulted in loss of lives and environmental damage. This paper has been prepared by the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) in order to heighten industry awareness with regard to pumproom safety issues and to propose the adoption of a package of improvement measures for general endorsement by relevant industry bodies. The International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals (ISGOTT) recognises that cargo pumprooms, 'by virtue of their location, design and operation, constitute a particular hazard and therefore necessitate special precautions.'. The pumproom contains the largest concentration of cargo pipelines of any space within the ship and leakage of volatile product from any part of this system could lead to the rapid generation of a flammable atmosphere. The pumproom could also contain a number of potential ignition sources unless formal, structured maintenance, inspection and monitoring procedures are strictly adhered to. In addition, operations require the space to be routinely entered by personnel.
