‘This textbook on tanker operations has been written to provide the knowledge and skills required to improve work safety, and enhance a seafarer’s awareness of their social responsibility to the marine environment in easy-to-read text. It covers all the aspects of tanker operations with lucid explanations using enhanced graphics and diagrams and is bound to be of immense value for those keen to serve on board an oil tanker as a cargo officer’. Extract from Foreword by Ms Mary Liew, General Secretary, Singapore Maritime Officers’ Union

This vital new handbook complies with the learning objectives of the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) Advanced Oil Tanker model course (2-3-2). It is easy to read and understand and is supported by several photos, enhanced graphics, links to video sites (for relevant topics), tables and examples of tanker calculations.

It will be indispensable reading for students who wish to pursue a career at sea and serve on tankers as officers. It will also be essential for maritime colleges for use as teaching material for their tanker courses and also as a reference book. Tanker companies will also find it of great value where it can be kept on board their vessel/s as a handy reference.
