SGMF released its ’LNG as a marine fuel – Safety and Operational Guidelines – Bunkering’ publication. The NGO says this is the third revision which is the most comprehensive; it covers all aspects related to the bunkering of LNG fuel in a more detailed way.
The maritime industry is increasingly adopting LNG as the fuel for newbuild ships. This is the result of both environmental benefits and growing LNG bunkering supply infrastructure. Facilities are now well established in most parts of the world; there are more operational LNG bunkering vessels serving the industry than ever before.
