SIRE is an inspection risk assessment tool that was launched by OCIMF in 1993. It has been adopted by all oil and gas majors shipping their cargoes by sea, as well as tanker owners, operators and charterers, terminal operators and government bodies concerned with ship safety.
A SIRE inspection is widely recognized as a benchmark for satisfactory tanker quality and ship safety standards and has become increasingly common as the oil and gas industry continues its drive for safer ships and cleaner seas.
Gazprom Marketing & Trading (via Gazprom Global LNG) is a full member of OCIMF and conducts vessel SIRE inspections on behalf of the Gazprom Group.
On the 19 November 2013 the newly delivered LNG Carrier “Lena River” was inspected by Gazprom Marketing & Trading under the Oil Companies International Marine Forum's (OCIMF) Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE). It was the first ever SIRE inspection conducted by the Gazprom Group.
Gazprom Marketing & Trading now provides the inspection services on a worldwide basis for various types of vessels (LNG carriers, LPG, Product/Oil/Chemical tankers).
