History of LNG and Gas Engines 1825, Michael Faraday Experimented with liquefying of gases.

Gas Engines run in 1860 - But prior designs were patented as early as 1807

Karl von Linde first practical refrigerator machine in 1873.

IGF-Code Background The Maritime Safety Committee (MSC 78, May 2004) approved a new work programme item: “Development of international regulations for gas-fuelled ships” The Sub-Committee on Bulk Liquid and Gases commenced the development at its 8th session (BLG 8, 2004) and established a correspondence group under the co-ordination of Norway to further progress the work

IGF – Code process In commencing the work in 2004, the sub-committee on bulk liquid and gases decided on a two step approach: 1.

Development of interim guidelines for gas-fuelled ships.

2.

Development of a Code of safety for gas-fuelled ships

MSC 86 (2009) approved “Interim guidelines on safety for natural gasfuelled engine installation in ships” Resolution MSC.285(86).

The IGF-Code The development of the IGF-Code started in 2009 In 2010 it was agreed to ask MSC for an extension of the scope to also cover other gases and low flash-point fuels - MSC agreed. However at the last session of BLG in February 2013, it was agreed to finalize the Code for natural gas as a first step.
