Liquefied Natural Gas

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has emerged as one of the fastest growing segments in the energy industry thanks to rising demand for environmentally cleaner fuels that can be easily supplied to distant markets.

LNG has emerged as one of the fastest growing segments in the energy industry. A key cause is rising demand for environmentally cleaner fuels that can be easily supplied to distant markets.

Safety when loading and transporting LNG is important for those working on-board or in shore-based terminal roles, with a particular focus on understanding the effects of this extreme-temperature liquid and preventing and tackling fire.

AMC Search provides the broadest range of maritime training courses in the Southern Hemisphere, many specifically designed for individuals and organisations in the LNG sector.

Bespoke Training

As well as short courses, over 50% of our training is bespoke and put together to meet the specific training needs of organisations. We can carry out gap and skills analysis and design and deliver training that works for your organisation. Most of our training can be delivered in Tasmania, with accommodation provided, or at your location.

Bespoke training we’ve provided to the LNG industry includes an LNG Loadmaster course for Prelude, the world's second floating liquefied natural gas platform and the largest offshore facility ever constructed

Our state-of-the-art maritime simulation facilities include a Full Mission Bridge: a full-scale mock-up of a ship and its surroundings. With its advanced and immersive technology, the maritime simulation facility is ideal for LNG industry training in areas such as safety and vessel handling. Rather than off-the-shelf solutions, we are experts in putting together bespoke simulated training that meets your organisation’s needs.

Simulated training we’ve delivered to the LNG sector includes:

  • LNG tanker safety course
  • Simulated LNG handling
