Cargoes carried on tanker ships are flammable in nature as most release some types of gases which form a combustible mixture composed of hydrocarbons. A flammble mixture contains 1-10% hydrocarbon gas and the rest is air. "The cargoes we carry is often flammable, highly toxic, and corrosive - in short, it can be very dangerous to human health," said a ship Captain.
