Benefits of using LNG as ship fuel:
The use of LNG as ship fuel has recently gained more attention in Europe, but
also in Asia and USA. There are three visible drivers which, taken together, make
LNG as ship fuel one of the most promising fuels and technologies for shipping.
 The use of LNG as ship fuel will reduce sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions by
100%. This reduction level will also be mandated within the so called
Emission Control Areas (ECAs) by 2015. A similar reduction will be enforced
for worldwide shipping by 2020. „
 The lower carbon content of LNG compared to traditional ship fuels enables a
20-25% reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Any slip of methane
during bunkering or usage needs to be avoided to maintain this advantage.
 LNG is less costly than fuel oil. Current low LNG prices in Europe suggest
that a price - based on energy content - comparable to heavy fuel oil (HFO)
seems more than possible, even when taking into account the small scale
distribution of the LNG.
LNG cost (as commodity - free of charge with infrastructure costs,
transportation, and taxes) comes at least 36% cheaper than fuel oil.
LNG Supply from QATAR:
QENERGY Europe holds a Master LNG Sale and Purchase
Agreement (MSPA with RAS LAFFAN LIQUIFIED NATURAL
GAS COMPANY LIMITED (RL3).
Notice that Qatar is the world largest producer of LNG. Today, half
of the world’s LNG production derives from RasGas and QatarGas,
with a large investment program set to increase their production.
More than 1,300 ships will be LNG fueled by 2020
6 - 10 million tons p.a. of LNG as fuel shipping expected by 2020
