SCOPE

This booklet has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Annex I of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL 73/78), as amended by Resolution MEPC.186 (59), adopted on 17 July 2009, as well as with the requirements of the ICS and OCIMF “Ship-to-ship Transfer Guide, Petroleum”, fourth edition, 2005 and IMO’s “Manual on Oil Pollution, Section 1 – Prevention” as amended.

LE

The purpose of this booklet is to provide guidance to the Master and officers directly involved in ship to ship (STS) oil transfer operations with respect to the steps to be followed when this operation is likely to occur. The procedures developed in this booklet aim at supporting the crew in establishing the safest and most efficient course of action to be taken when conducting STS operations. This booklet contains guidance on general conditions and operational requirements for when the ship is involved in STS operations, during which both ships involved should comply fully with the safety precautions required for normal cargo operations.

2. 3.

A

4.

Oil transfer operations associated with fixed or floating platforms including drilling rigs; floating production, storage and offloading facilities (FPSOs) used for the offshore production and storage of oil; and floating storage units (FSUs) used for the offshore storage of produced oil. Bunkering operations. STS operations necessary for the purpose of securing the safety of a ship or saving life at sea, or for combating specific pollution incidents in order to minimize the damage from pollution. STS operations where either of the ships involved is a warship, naval auxiliary or other ship owned or operated by a State and used, for the time being, only on government non-commercial service.

DEFINITIONS

At Sea The term "at sea" is intended to indicate offshore waters or partially sheltered waters. It may be, however, that an STS transfer operation at sea is to be conducted within the jurisdiction of a local (port) authority or national government. In such cases reference has to be made to local regulations and it may also be necessary to obtain local approval.

LE

Closed Operations Ballasting, loading or discharging operations carried out without recourse to opening ullage and sighting ports. In these cases ships will require the means to enable closed monitoring of tank contents, either by a fixed gauging system or by using portable equipment passed through a vapour lock. Constant Heading Ship During manoeuvring and mooring, the ship that maintains course and speed to allow the manoeuvring ship to approach and moor is referred to as the constant heading ship.

P

Dedicated Lightering Ship A dedicated lightering ship is a ship designed to perform multiple STS operations. These ships are usually fitted with adequate primary and secondary fenders, which upon completion of an STS transfer are capable of being lifted and stowed in onboard cradles. They are usually fitted with their own hoses and are generally capable of performing STS operations without external assistance such as support craft.

M

Discharging Ship The ship containing cargo for transfer to the receiving ship, and which may also be known as the Ship To Be Lightened (STBL). Displacement Ship's total weight including all cargo, ballast, fuel, water, stores, and light ship weight. It may be found for any draught from ship's hydrostatic tables.

A

Ice Covered Waters Means waters where local ice conditions present a structural risk to a ship

S

Manoeuvring Ship During manoeuvring and mooring, the ship that approaches the Constant Heading Ship for mooring operations is referred to as the manoeuvring ship. Organizers Organizers are shore-based operators responsible for arranging an STS transfer operation. The Organizer may be an STS service provider. Person in Overall Advisory Control The person agreed to be in overall control of an STS operation. It may be one of the Masters (generally the Master of the manoeuvring ship) or it may be an STS Superintendent. Primary Fenders Primary fenders are large fenders capable of absorbing the impact energy of berthing and wide enough to prevent contact between the ships should they roll while alongside one another.

M/T “VSLNAME“ STS OPERATIONS PLAN

PAGE 9 OF 98

Receiving Ship The ship to which cargo is transferred from the Discharging Ship. The Receiving Ship may also be known as the lightering ship. Secondary Fenders Secondary fenders are fenders used to prevent contact between the two ships, should they be rolling or not parallel to each other. They are especially effective when rigged towards the ends of a ship and are of most benefit during mooring and unmooring operations. Shipowner Includes an owner, manager or operator having day-to-day commercial and/or operational control of the ship.

LE

Ship-To-Ship (STS) Transfer Operation An STS transfer operation is an operation where crude oil or petroleum products are transferred between seagoing ships moored alongside each other. Such operations may take place when one ship is at anchor or when both are underway. In general, the expression includes the approach manoeuvre, berthing, mooring, hose connecting, safe procedures for cargo transfer, hose disconnecting, unmooring and departure manoeuvre.

P

STS Service Provider An STS service provider is a company or organisation that specializes in providing services for the safe control of STS operations. The service provider may also supply the essential personnel and equipment needed such as hoses, fenders and support craft.

M

STS Superintendent A person who may be designated to assist a ship's Master in the mooring and unmooring of the ships, and to co-ordinate and supervise the entire ship-to-ship transfer operation. He may also be known as Lightering Master or Mooring Master. SWL SWL or Safe Working Load is the operating limit to which equipment is tested for dayto-day use. Equipment should never be used beyond its SWL.

S

A

Transfer Area A transfer area is an area within which an STS transfer operation takes place. Transfer areas should be selected in safe sea areas (see Section 3.1). In coastal areas they will be agreed with nearby coastal authorities and, as appropriate, in accordance with specific port or national regulations. Transfer at Anchor The expression "transfer at anchor" describes an operation where a cargo transfer is carried out between ships when they are moored alongside each other and one of the ships is at anchor. The operation is an alternative to underway transfer. Underway By definition under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS) a ship when underway is not at anchor, made fast to the shore or aground. However, she may be either steaming or drifting freely with current and weather.

2. DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

This Section outlines the duties and responsibilities of shipboard personnel (and STS service providers, where applicable) engaged in STS operations. An STS transfer operation should be under the advisory control of one individual (the person in overall advisory control), who will be either one of the Masters concerned, or an STS Superintendent. It is the duty of this person to supervise the STS operations, ensure that the procedures in this booklet are followed (see Sections 3 & 4). It is not intended that the person in overall advisory control in any way relieves the ship’s Master of any of his duties, requirements or responsibilities. ORGANIZERS

6.2.3. Guidelines for Data Entry 1

Introduction The STS Plan Mooring Map has been developed as a tool to facilitate preoperational verification regarding the compatibility of two vessels scheduled to conduct an STS operation. In order to determine such compatibility the STS Plan Mooring Map captures key dimensional and mooring equipment related data for the named vessel. This enables concerned parties to compare the data captured for both vessels that are scheduled to conduct an STS operation to verify their compatibility to do so.

LE

1.1 Applicability The STS Mooring Map has been developed for tanker owners and operators and STS Resource Providers who have a vested interest in ensuring the operational integrity and safety of STS Operations conducted utilising their assets and/or for which they have accountability. Scope The STS Mooring Map is an element of the STS Plan developed in accordance with the standards describe in MARPOL Annex I, as amended by Resolution MEPC. 186(59), Chapter 8: Prevention of Pollution during Transfer of Oil Cargo between Oil Tankers at Sea, Regulations 40, 41, 42.

3

General Guidelines The data entry fields in both the particulars and map sheets are unprotected and have been configured to reproduce text in blue. Heading and formulated fields are protected and have been configured to reproduce data in black text.

M

P

2

Particulars Sheet The data in the 'Particulars' sheet of the STS Plan Mooring Map can be found in the SIRE Vessel's Particulars Questionnaire. Primarily such data is of a dimensional nature and is self explanatory by virtue of their individual heading descriptions.

A

3.1

Map Sheet The data in the 'Map' sheet of the STS Plan Mooring Map should be taken from the vessel's Mooring Arrangement Plans. The conventions for location mooring equipment items are as follows: • Longitudinal co-ordinates Measured from the aftermost extremity of the ship's structure towards the vessel's bow. • Transverse co-ordinates Measured from the Vessel's Centreline towards the ship's side referred to in the specific table heading, or in the case of the 'Structural Appendages' table, as per the description. • Vertical co-ordinates Measured from the Vessel's Keel upwards. The Table Headings are as follows: (i) Port Fairleads (ii) Starboard Fairleads (iii) Port Bollards

Starboard Bollards Structural Appendages

Details that should be included in the Structural Appendages table are items that overhang or are vertically above or proximate to the vertical taken from the vessel's sheer strake at the specific location in question. Examples of these may include bridge wings, lifeboats and aft stores crane gantries. 4

Descriptions for fairleads and bollards Fairleads Data entry for the Fairlead Type is facilitated by selection of the appropriate fairlead description from a drop down box. An example is shown hereunder:

Fairlead Numbering system Whilst there is no fixed system for numbering the fairleads, naming each fairlead with its own unique alphanumeric identity assists the user to avoid any ambiguity. Furthermore it assists in the determination of the optimum pairing of bollards with their most appropriate fairleads for the purpose of effective mooring. For example, prefix the bollards on the Port Side with the letter P and number them from aft to forward. Similarly, fairleads on the starboard side could be prefixed with the letter S and numbered aft to forward. For fairleads on the Centreline, these could be prefixed by C/L numbered aft to forward. Bitts and Bollards Data entry for the Bollard Type is facilitated by selection of the appropriate Bollard description fro m a drop down box. An example is shown hereunder:

Bollard Numbering system Whilst there is no fixed system for numbering the bollards, naming each one with its own unique alphanumeric identity assists the user assists the user to avoid any ambiguity. For example, prefix the bollards on the Port Side with the letter P and alphabetically order them from aft to forward with lower case lettering. Similarly, bollards on the starboard side could be prefixed with the letter S and alphabetically ordered using lower case letters. For bollards on the Centreline, these could be prefixed by C/L and alphabetically ordered using lower case letters. In order to identify optimum pairing between bollards and fairleads a data entry field is available for recording the identity number of the nearest fairlead for each set of bollards or bitts. A further data entry field is available for capturing the distance form each set of bollard or bitts to its nearest fairlead.

EXAMPLE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTIONS OF STS HOSES

The following instructions shall be followed by ship’s personnel to connect the STS Hoses supplied by the STS Service Provider. Ideally this operation should be supervised throughout by the attending STS Superintendent, and should only be performed by the ship’s staff when requested in writing to do so by the STS Service Provider. If it is possible to do so, ship’s staff should endeavour to complete stages 1 thru 5 of the tightening process, leaving the final stage to complete under the supervision of the attending STS Superintendent following his arrival on site.

Preparation Prior to connection of the two hoses, the flange faces should be inspected and cleaned to ensure all residues and debris from previous gaskets or fixatives are removed completely. For best results, use a metal flange scraper and an aerosol gasket remover and inspect the flange for damage. Be sure surface finish and flatness are satisfactory. Avoid using a wire brush for cleaning flange surfaces as this could result in surface scoring. Only the joints, nuts, bolts and torque wrench supplied with these hose sections are to be used for the purpose of hose connection.

P

Lubricate bolt and nut threads and nut bearing face (where it contacts the flange). Centre the gasket on the flange. Note: standard ANSI ring gaskets, when cut properly, should centre themselves with the bolts in place.

Tightening process After flange assembly and all nuts have been run down by hand with joint in place, start wrench tightening following the sequence of the numbers indicated on the flange diagram above (marking the number on the flange with a crayon aids in keeping track of the tightening process). During all of the following steps, keep any gap between flanges even all around the circumference, and nuts made up approximately the same amount on each end of the bolt. 1) First time around just snug the nuts with a hand wrench. 2) Second time around tighten the nuts firmly with the same wrench.

3) 4) 5) 6)

Use a torque wrench for the following steps: Third time around apply approximately 25% recommended torque**. Fourth time apply approximately 75% of recommended torque**. Fifth time around, apply 100% of recommended torque**. Continue tightening nuts all around until nuts do not move under 100% recommended torque**.

P

If possible, re-torque after completion of each transfer operation as most of the short term bolt preload loss occurs within 24 hours after initial tightening.
