Description: With increasing concern over the impact of human activities on our environment, the maritime transport industry is moving towards using natural gas on board ships as a prime source of energy, both for propulsion and for power generation on board. National and international maritime regulation, led by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), with its Emission Control Areas (ECAs), 2020 Sulphur cap and 2050 Carbon reduction targets see the beginnings of regulation to forcibly reduce air emissions from shipping.
The use of natural gas as a shipping fuel is one way of complying with the increasingly strict regime governing emissions of harmful atmospheric pollutants. Typical reductions are 95% less for nitrogen oxides [NOx], 99.9% less for sulphur oxides [SOx] but perhaps most significant is the Carbon Dioxide [CO2] reduction of up to 21%. Natural gas as a shipping fuel is a fully compliant and available choice for post 2020 operation, it’s widespread use thereafter would provide a significant contribution to the IMO 2050 GHG reduction target.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is the most cost-effective way of transporting natural gas over very long distances. It has been produced and transported internationally in bulk in this manner for over 50 years. The gas-as-fuel industry builds on this expertise – but the bulk trade and the gas-as-fuel business differ in significant ways.
