Note 1 in superscript indicates the changes / modifications / additions as approved in 20th Safety Council Meeting held in October 2002.
the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas in 1986 constituted a Safety Council assisted by the Oil Industry Safety Directorate (OISD) staffed from within the industry in formulating and implementing a series of self regulatory measures aimed at removing obsolescence. This Document was prepared based on the accumulated knowledge and experience of industry members and the various national and international codes and practices. With this in view. Accordingly OISD constituted a number of functional committees comprising of experts nominated from industry to draw up standards and guidelines on various subjects. This document will be reviewed periodically for improvements based on new experiences and better understanding. This document on “ LPG Tank Trucks : Requirements of Safety On Design / Fabrication and Fittings “was prepared by the Functional Committee on Liquified Petroleum Gas ( LPG ). Suggestions from industry may be addressed to: OIL INDUSTRY SAFETY DIRECTORATE 7th Floor. Over the years a variety of practices have been in vogue because of collaboration/association with different foreign companies hardly in existence at a national level. operating and maintaining oil and gas installations. This lack of uniformity.
