OCIMF’s Design and Construction Specification for Marine Loading Arms, Fourth Edition (2019) provides guidance to owners and vendors on designing and procuring Marine Loading Arms (MLAs).
It serves as a definitive guide to MLA construction and specification, covering topics such as applications, variability, operating envelopes, products transferred, servicing, manifold spacing, jetty and piping layouts and arm styles.
The tables are completed by the MLA owners to specify what is needed from the vendor.
- Complete them in order, i.e. from A1 to C.
- Read the guidance notes at the top of each table first. They explain the purpose of the table and help the owner assess the importance of the data to be specified.
Please be aware this tool is compatible with ExCel 2010 and later.
