As a response to increasing developments in emission regulations and their impacts on shipping globally, Lloyd’s Register has commissioned a study with the aim of understanding how a global LNG bunkering infrastructure may develop.
The overall concept for the study has been to review the case for LNG as a ship propulsion fuel for deep-sea shipping by examining:
- Shipping trade patterns and current bunkering trends by most ship types and size ranges.
- Fuel consumption requirements for power generation by most ship types and ship size ranges and the potential required volume requirements.
- Availability of existing and future LNG supply channels as a possible bunker fuel globally.
- Two stakeholders’ surveys (shipowners and port operators) to understand how key industry players will respond to the regulations in short-, medium- and long-term.
