Guide for LNG Bunkering, update to 2018

Year: 2017
Language: english
Author: ABS
Genre: Guide
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 25
Description: Recently, the marine industry has seen growing interest in the use of alternative fuels such as LNG and alternative technologies such as exhaust emission abatement equipment to meet stricter international, regional, national, and local air emissions legislation. These techniques are primarily aimed at meeting the IMO Annex VI Regulations 13 and 14 requirements for nitrogen oxide emissions from diesel engines and sulfur oxide emissions from all fuel-burning equipment on board.
Most LNG-fueled vessels in operation at the time of issuance of this Guide receive LNG bunkers on a relatively small scale, typically through a shore-to-ship basis by road tankers or dedicated shore side LNG tanks. To support the further growth and development of LNG fueled vessels for short sea and international trade it is recognized that more dedicated LNG infrastructure needs to be developed; particularly small scale LNG storage and distribution centers together with dedicated LNG bunkering vessels enabling ship-to-ship LNG transfer. Furthermore, it is envisaged that greater LNG transfer rates than those typically used for refueling the current gas fueled ship fleet will be required and this will necessitate the deployment of new and additional bunkering equipment and operational practices.
