Gas Carrier Ship Rider Program

If you are interested in participating in a Liquefied Gas Carrier ship-ride or industry training please contact LCDR Dallas Smith and copy .

The Liquefied Gas Carrier (LGC) Ship Rider Program is designed to facilitate professional exchange opportunities primarily for Coast Guard personnel assigned to Sectors and Marine Safety Units  responsible for LGC import or export facilities. 

In general, only FGCE's who have attended the Coast Guard's Gas Carrier Inspector course and who are stationed at Sectors and Marine Safety Units with responsibilities for LGC facilities in their zones will be allowed to participate in the LGC ship rider program.  FGCE's at units where import or export facilities are expected to begin operation within a year may also participate.
