Leadership During a Time of Change “LNG Bunkering Facilities and Bunkering Operations ” Sector Motto: “ALL MISSIONS, HUMBLE SERVICE, BUILDING LEADERS.” LT WILLIAM J. HICKEY
LNG as a Marine Fuel Drivers Reduces Air Pollution Energy Independence Job Creation Reduce Fuel Costs
Challenges Facility Conversions/Construction Infrastructure Training Regulations Shipyard Repair Procedures and Resources

US Federal Regulations LNG Supply by Shore (Fixed) LNG Supply by Shore (Mobile) LNG Supply by sea (Ship/Barge) 33 CFR 127 33 CFR Part 127, 49 CFR Parts 172, 177, and 178 46 CFR Subchapter D, 46 CFR Parts 11, 12, 15, and 154, 33 CFR Parts 155 and 156.
U.S. Coast Guard Policy Letters LNG as Fuel VESSEL: CG-521 Policy Letter 01-12 "Equivalency Determination - Design Criteria for Natural Gas Fuel Systems.” BARGE: Coast Guard Office of Hazardous Materials Division (CG-ENG-5) is currently developing policy regarding the design of LNG barges. The starting point for design is regulations in the International Gas Carrier Code (IGC) and Title 46 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 154 -Safety Standards for Self Propelled Vessels Carrying Bulk Liquefied Gases TRANSFER OPERATIONS: DRAFT CG-OES Policy Letter No. 01-14, Guidelines for Liquefied Natural Gas Fuel Transfer Operations and Training of Personnel on Vessels Using Natural Gas as Fuel FACILITIES: DRAFT CG-OES Policy Letter No. 02-14, Guidance Related to Vessels and Waterfront Facilities Conducting Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Marine Fuel Transfer (Bunkering) Operations LOCAL POLICY: Drafting Local Guidelines that will dovetail with the HQ Guidance.

Waterway Impacts The Coast Guard is responsible for safety, security and environmental stewardship in our regions navigable inland and coastal waters. The Captain of the Port must review a Waterway Suitability Assessment prior to LNG Transfer operations.
