Vetting Observation

6.21.1 Bunker pipelines test was carried out on 19-Jul-2012 using compressed air instead of
hydrostatic test.

VMS 4.0

Chemical Tanker

12.20.2 Pipelines

As with the valves, it is essential that all cargo, COW, ballast and bunker pipework remains in
good condition. To ensure this, all cargo, ballast and bunker pipework should be tested to
100% of their rated working pressure (Sometimes referred to as Maximum Allowable Working
Pressure - MAWP) at least annually.

Cargo and bunker pipework should be tested to 1.5 times MAWP every 30 months.

On satisfactory completion of the test a suitable Deck Log entry is to be made. The entry
required is as follows:

Deck cargo lines tested to (insert test pressure).

The pressure used and the date is to be stencilled on each line adjacent to the manifold on
both sides of the vessel.

All mimic diagrams of cargo pipelines, valves, IG, venting and ballast systems must be kept
updated.

12.20.2 Pipelines

As with the valves, it is essential that all cargo, COW, ballast and bunker pipework remains in good
condition. To ensure this, all cargo, ballast and bunker pipework is to be annually pressure tested,
and must not leak under static liquid pressure at least 1.5 times the maximum allowable working
pressure.

On satisfactory completion of the test a suitable Deck Log entry is to be made. The entry required is
as follows:

Deck cargo lines tested to (insert test pressure).

The pressure used and the date is to be stencilled on each line adjacent to the manifold on both
sides of the vessel.

All mimic diagrams of cargo pipelines, valves, IG, venting and ballast systems must be kept updated.
