Operating regulations for the Oil Harbour. Valid from 2012-01-01. Confrmed by: Dan-Erik Andersson. Ofcial in charge: Joel Smith.
1. General regulations for vessels
1.1 Masters declaration
All vessels calling at the Gothenburg port area shall report to Port Control no later than 24 hours before
arrival. Reporting is made electronically via VTMS. Hazardous goods that are to be brought into the port
area by sea shall be notifed in VTMS no later than 24 hours before arrival at the port or not later than when
the vessel leaves the loading port if the voyage lasts less than 24 hours. Reporting must be fully completed
to be considered as a masters declaration.
1.2 Ventilation gases from tanks
All ships must declare previous cargo before calling at the port. Vessels with most recent cargo containing a
high concentration of hydrogen sulphide and mercaptan must declare the concentration of these substances
in the tank atmosphere no later than 12 hours before arrival. For loading of products where gas recovery is
not used, the following maximum permitted values apply, for H
2
S 50 ppm and for mercaptan 0.5 ppm, both
values stated in i gas phase. Te requisite protective equipment shall be used for all handling of products
with a higher H
2
S or mercaptan concentration than stated above.
Before arrival, excess pressure in cargo tanks must be reduced to normal atmospheric pressure for check
measurement. If these rules are not followed, there is a risk of being forced to shift from berth to anchorage
for ventilation and of losing priority. All costs in connection with sampling, analysis and shifting are incurred
at the expense of the shipping company.
1.3 Order of priority at quays
Provided declaration is made in accordance with current port regulations, order of priority is calculated from
when the vessel arrives in the trafc area, or at assigned anchorages or waiting berth and Notice of Readiness
(NOR) has been tendered. By approach is meant approach from the sea (Vinga) or approach from the River
Gta (Lrje). If the vessel has not exercised its priority within 6 hours of the berth being granted, the vessel
next in turn may go in to berth.
Exception Tor Harbour: Vice President Operations or his/her deputy may on request break the priority rules
if there is special cause. A refnery that for compelling production reasons requests priority for the unloading
of a crude oil cargo is cause for a deviation. A deviation report shall be prepared.
Vessels that for some reason outside the control of the Oil Harbour lie idle for a longer period (more than 6 hours)
may be turned away from the quay after deliberation between the port ofcer/oil harbour management and
the ships master. Te ships master is responsible for obtaining the assistance of a pilot/tug when such assistance
is required for departure from quay. Vessels turned away from quay as above are placed in order of priority
when a renewed Notice of Readiness (NOR) has been tendered and the vessel is ready for cargo handling.
Vessels that, after completed loading or discharging at an oil harbour quay, for some reason outside the
control of the Oil Harbour request to return to quay, are placed in order of priority in accordance with the
above and are assigned an anchorage or waiting quay pending an available quay. Renewed Notice of
Readiness (NOR) need not be tendered.
Vessels at oil harbour quays shall constantly be ready to move at short notice under their own power. Exemption
can be granted by Port ofcers in exceptional circumstances, provided the following conditions are met:

a tug with the necessary tug capacity will be provided as long as the vessel is not able to move under its own
power. Tis tug will be in the vicinity of the vessel, though no further away than that the tug can be in
position within 20 minutes.

a berth will be granted only as long as no other vessel requests the berth in question.
1.4 Smoking
Smoking is prohibited on open deck, jetties or the like, regardless of what cargo the ship is carrying. Notices
prohibiting smoking shall be readily visible on board. Port ofcers may, when particular circumstances demand
it, prohibit smoking in areas where smoking is normally allowed.

permitted in wind forces over 20 m/s mean wind (read from a windgauge indicated by the port).
Bunkering is not permitted during ongoing unloading, loading, sampling or ventilating of fammable goods
with a fashpoint lower than 30C. Neither may bunkering take place during unloading/loading if the ship has
previously carried fammable goods with a fashpoint lower than 30C in cargo tanks or slop tanks unless tank
cleaning has been carried out and the ship is free of gas. Tis shall be afrmed by a certifcate or attest from
am independent surveyor. Observe that the conditions also apply to bunkering from vehicles on the quay.
Te port ofcer can grant exemption from the above rule on lowest fashpoint if special conditions are met.

shall be used in accordance with the general operating instructions of the Port of Gothenburg. However, all
vessels, regardless of length, that moor at berths 510, 511, 519, 520, 521, 800 and 801 shall use boatmen. Te
port ofcer can temporarily prescribe that boatmen shall be used even for ships under the length limit of 80 m
when prevailing circumstances such as weather, manoeuvrability or the design of the vessel make it necessary
from the point of view of safety.
1.9.2 Communication
Communication over VHF with the port ofcer, the Oil Harbour and Port Control is made on VHF channel 12.
1.9.3 Regulations for weather on arrival, departure or shifting
If the weather forecast (as indicated by the port) indicates mean winds over 20 m/s, the harbour master or his
deputy determines whether arrival at or departure from Oil Harbour quays is to be permitted or required.
Tis decision is based on wind force and direction, the vessel concerned, the availability of tugs etc. Te ships
master decides on tug assistance and a pilot and places orders for these services.

Operating regulations for the Oil Harbour. Valid from 2012-01-01. Confrmed by: Dan-Erik Andersson. Ofcial in charge: Joel Smith.
3. Regulations for ushing ships tanks
3.1 General
Cleaning of a ships cargo tanks (tank fushing) is not allowed without a special permit at quays in the whole
Oil Harbour area. Tank fushing entails a greater risk of an outfow of fammable and injurious gases and there
is also a risk of ignition of the fammable gases. Special restrictions therefore apply in the Oil Harbour in the
Port of Gothenburg.
A permit may be issued, at the request of the ships master, for vessels that arrive at the Oil Harbour in the
Port of Gothenburg for loading/unloading or to pump ashore oil contaminated tank washings before shifting
to a repair yard in Gothenburg. Flushing and ventilating of slop tanks containing tank washings may be
allowed, with the observance of certain marginal values concerning emissions to the air. Recommendations
in ISGOTT shall be complied with.
3.2 Reporting
Te ships duty ofcer shall report intention and request permission from the Oil Harbours port ofcer to
clean or ventilate the ships tanks before the work may be started. If wash liquid is to be conveyed ashore,
agreement must be reached with a receiving depot.
3.3 Checklist
Before tank cleaning a special checklist must be completed and signed by the ships and ports duty ofcers.
See appendix A 1.3. For pumping ashore of washings (cargo residue) B 1.1.4 applies. Swedish Transport
Administration regulations shall be observed.
3.4 Responsibility
Te ships duty ofcer shall ensure that operations take place in a correct manner. Te person on board
responsible for operations shall have the required competence.
3.5 General rules for operations
Te requisite gas measurements shall be carried out by an authorised person. Te Oil Harbour has the right
to appoint an independent gas tester if it is considered necessary.
3.6 Safety guard on board
Te following shall be complied with:

the ships duty ofcer shall appoint a safety guard from the crew.

the safety guard shall be on deck when fushing.

the safety guard shall be on deck when tank washings are pumped ashore.
26
Operating regulations for the Oil Harbour. Valid from 2012-01-01. Confrmed by: Dan-Erik Andersson. Ofcial in charge: Joel Smith.
3.7 Ventilation
When ventilating tanks that contain fammable goods with a fashpoint of 30C or lower, ventilating shall
take place through the ships ventilation system. After completed cleaning of the tank or pair of tanks that have
contained washings residue, ventilating may take place by other means after agreement with the port ofcer,
if ventilating through the ventilation system is not possible.
3.8 Inspection
Te port ofcer has the right to ensure that equipment for tank cleaning, ventilating and communications
systems are in a satisfactory condition and that the proposed method can be accepted.
3.9 Crude oil washing
Recommendations in ISGOTT shall be complied with.
3.10 Unloading of ballast water
When unloading ballast water, the same regulations apply as for unloading products (see chapter A 2).
3.11 Emission of ballast water in the Gothenburg port area
Only clean ballast water from tanks exclusively used for ballast water (SBT) may be released into the sea,
docks or other port area administered by the Oil Harbour in the Port of Gothenburg. Te port ofcer may
carry out the requisite inspections. Time consumed and any costs for such inspections of ballast are incurred
at the ships expense.
Te ships ofcer is responsible for release/pumping out being suspended if any oil contamination of the ballast
water is discovered or suspected. Te jetty operator shall be informed immediately.

4. Use of insulation anges
4.1 General conditions
Insulating fanges shall be used where fammable goods are handled between ship and shore.
Electrically non-conductive hoses may be used as an alternative to an insulating fange. Te same rules apply for
insulation measurement and intervals as for insulating fanges. Non-conductive hoses shall be clearly marked
with details of such so as not to be confused with conductive hoses. Gas return hoses shall be conductive.
4.2 Function check
Te insulation resistance shall be checked regularly or at least twice per year and recorded.
Te lowest permitted insulation resistance is 1,000 ohms. Te measuring voltage should exceed 100 volts. If
the resistance is lower, the hose or loading arm may not be connected.
When measuring the insulation resistance of a horizontally placed insulating fange in the ballast pipe, this
shall frst be drained and any water dried out. Such measurement shall be made before a ballast pipe with a
horizontally placed insulating fange is put to use.
Poor or absent insulation capacity of an insulating fange shall immediately be reported to the person responsible
at the terminal in the case of equipment belonging to individual depots or companies in the Oil Harbour, or to
the port ofcer responsible if the equipment belongs to the Oil Harbour in the Port of Gothenburg.
After notice has been given of faulty equipment, the companies shall promptly attend to the faults in question.

Safety regulations
1. The issuer of a permit is responsible for the hot work being conducted in accordance with prevailing regulations. (That there is internal
coordination of the work at the company, that a sufcient risk assessment has been made, that handling of ammable goods is done in
accordance with prevailing conditions and restrictions for the work, that relevant changes in operations are communicated to contractors
concerned etc). The issuer of the permit is also responsible for the hot work being reported to Port of Gothenburg AB on a daily basis via
a web form at www.portgot.se.

2. The operator is responsible for the work being carried out in accordance with prevailing regulations. (That the right equipment is in place,
that the instructions in the permit are followed, that the personnel have the right training etc). The operator is also responsible for gas

shall be accessible at the workplace.
3. The person in charge of coordination is responsible for checking that the work can be conducted with regard to other activities in the
port area, with the exception of the issuing companys own activities.
4. Hot work is all work with an open ame, spark forming and heat generating tools that can produce a spark or heat sufcient to ignite
well-carburetted ignitable gas. Examples of hot work in the oil harbour are: heat pistols, welding equipment, cutting machines, battery-
operated screwdrivers. Electrical equipment that is not of ex-classed type, mobile phones, cameras, video equipment and measuring
equipment operated by battery. Work with excavators, sky-lifts and the like. Car trafc in ex-classed zones. Non- ex-classed pumps
and fans. Pneumatic equipment does not usually require a hot work permit (provided there is no risk of mechanical sparks during the
work itself).
5. Before work is started:
a) All easily combustible material within 15 metres of the workplace is removed. If the weather is dry the ground is to be watered.
Oil spill on the ground to be cleaned up.
b) Manholes within 15 metres of the workplace are sealed.
c) For indoor work, re cell limits to be reviewed and if necessary sealed.
d) For work where there is a risk of accumulation of ammable gases, the ventilation is to be adapted to eliminate this risk. Observe
that explosion protected ventilation equipment may be required in certain cases.
6. The workplaces extinguishing equipment is to be kept easily accessible. All personnel shall be able to handle it correctly.
7. Gas cylinders are marked with a clearly visible sign in accordance with the current standard. Gas-welding equipment shall be tted with
backre protection, check valves, xed shut-off key and protective glove. After completed work and at the end of the working day, the
equipment is put in the place assigned.
8. For work where construction may lead heat to combustible material (roong, welding on a girder in a wall etc) a regular check is made
that there is no incipient smouldering or risk of ignition. Checks shall also be made on interruption for breaks or in connection with
completion of work. Further checks are to be made at least one hour after work is completed.
9. Certain parts of the oil harbour area may be contaminated by previous spill. If leakage oozes out in connection with digging, for example,
the work shall immediately be suspended until the leakage has been ascertained to be harmless with regard to re and explosion.
10. Electric cables and control devices for welding equipment and lighting etc shall be whole and well protected from mechanical damage.
Connected electrical equipment may not be left unattended at the workplace. The welding equipments return circuit is to be placed as
close to the welding place as possible.
11. Non-ATEX-classed mobile phones are prohibited in certain zones.
12. Smoking is generally prohibited in the oil harbour area (there are, however, exceptions in specially appointed places).
13. For work where gas measurement is required, this shall be documented in writing.

2. Use and inspection of insulation anges
2.1 General conditions
Insulating fanges shall be used where fammable goods are handled between ship and shore. Electrically
non-conductive hoses may be used as an alternative to an insulating fange. Te same rules apply for insulation
measurement and intervals as for insulating fanges. Non-conductive hoses shall be clearly marked with details
of such so as not to be confused with conductive hoses. Gas return hoses shall be conductive.
2.2 Function check
Te insulation resistance shall be checked regularly or at least twice per year and recorded.
Te lowest permitted insulation resistance is 1,000 ohms. Te measuring voltage should exceed 100 volts. If
the resistance is lower, the hose or loading arm may not be connected.
When measuring the insulation resistance of a horizontally placed insulating fange in the ballast pipe, this
shall frst be drained and any water dried out. Such measurement shall be made before a ballast pipe with a
horizontally placed insulating fange is put to use.
Poor or absent insulation capacity of an insulating fange shall immediately be reported to the person responsible
at the terminal in the case of equipment belonging to individual depots or companies in the Oil Harbour, or to
the port ofcer responsible if the equipment belongs to the Oil Harbour in the Port of Gothenburg. After notice
has been given of faulty equipment, the companies shall promptly attend to the faults in question.
