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.
