Industry coalition SEA\LNG has called for a collaborative approach which will understand the opportunities and tackle the associated commercial barriers to LNG to encourage its use as an alternative to traditional bunker fuels.

With a major transition to stricter emissions levels from marine bunker fuel due in 2020, when the global Sulphur cap will be reduced to 0.5%, SEA\LNG has called for a candid appraisal of barriers to LNG as a marine fuel. Ship owners, fuel suppliers, and other associated supply chain stakeholders will need to make major investments to comply with these new global regulations. By addressing the core issue; the fuel itself, LNG provides a viable solution for the long term. However, barriers need to be better understood and overcome if LNG is to reach its full potential.
