ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

First of all, we would like to express our deepest appreciation and thanks to all those who involve in completing this report. A special gratitude we give to our Ship and Offshore Production Technology lecture, Dr. Jaswar Koto for his contribution in stimulating suggestions, comments and encouragement to help us to coordinate this research study especially in writing this report. Without his help, this report entitled Production Process of Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) cannot be completed. Furthermore, we would also like to acknowledge with much appreciation to the staff of Perpustakaan Sultanah Zanariah, who gave fully assistant and necessary materials to complete this task. Special thanks go to our team mate members who give their fully commitment and efforts in achieving the goal in this research. Last but not least, many thanks go to friends who give an excellent cooperation and supported us to complete this research study.

ABSTRACT

Malaccamax very large crude oil carriers (VLCCs; crude oil tankers with deadweight of over 200,000 metric tons) are required to comply with a new set of Common Structural Rules (CSRs). They must also have the maximum cargo tank capacity and deadweight, while meeting the principal dimensions restrictions required sailing through the Strait of Malacca, including overall length, breadth, draught, and gross tonnage. This study is carried out to makes an attempt to know about the detailed information of VLCC. Besides, this study also conducted to view the production process of the VLCC starting from design process until delivery to the ship owner. Detailed process in the construction of this ship is discussed and analyze in this report. The method used to collect information about this report is mainly from the internet source, books, journal and article. From this study, we get to know about the rules and regulation applied in the construction of VLCCs hull and tanker arrangements. Other than that, we also get to know about more detailed process in VLCCs ship construction.
