First published 1977-2nd edition - Revised 2009

Item details

There is a growing sea traffic in liquified petroleum gas, the handling of which calls for great diligence and competence, not only at the terminals, but also during transit.

The vessels engaged in this important branch of marine transport are equipped with specialised equipment, the operation and maintenance of which call for special skills. Captain Woolcott's book, is the first comprehensive work covering the subject and has been prepared against the background of many years experience in practically every type of liquified gas carrier operating over a wide range of loading and receiving terminals and climatic conditions.

It is clearly written and arranged in a logical sequence of operational procedures and does not pre-suppose a deep technical knowledge on the part of the reader.
