SNAME/CIMarE/SAE Joint Technical Meeting Notice - April 28
The Potential of LNG as a Marine Fuel
The large-scale adoption of natural gas (methane) as a fuel is potentially one of the most significant trends to emerge for the marine industry in many decades. The marine industry in the Pacific Northwest, and in British Columbia in particular, is uniquely positioned to adopt LNG (and CNG) technology that offers both significant environmental and economic advantages, due to the abundance of supply, the proximity of infrastructure, a favourable pricing regime, and a potentially large vessel base that can employ proven technology. This Technical Meeting will provide an introduction to the current status of natural gas as a marine fuel in 2012, covering issues of supply, regulatory regime, engine technology, and vessel design. The presentations will also identify the challenges in each of these sectors that will need to be addressed to realise the full potential of natural gas as a marine fuel.
