– LNG bunkering Infrastructure Study
One of the largest obstacles to widespread take-up of LNG as fuel is the lack of a bunkering infrastructure. We have been researching the issues around a bunker network and infrastructure for the shipping industry and initiated a study examining trade patterns and existing bunker trends by ship type and size; examining the fuel consumption requirements; assessing the potential availability of LNG worldwide; and surveying the key stakeholder groups of shipowners and ports to understand their needs.
– LNG-fuelled deep sea shipping
The outlook for LNG bunker and LNG-fuelled newbuild demand up to 2025. After 12 months of research and analysis, we have concluded our 2011-12 study on LNG bunkering and newbuild demand for deep-sea shipping. The study was commissioned in April 2011 to understand how a global LNG bunkering infrastructure might develop and to assess the likelihood of LNG being widely adopted as a fuel for deep sea shipping.
