About the Event

A key requirement for ocean carriers to adopt LNG as an engine fuel is the availability of LNG bunkering facilities. As LNG is an extremely cold and volatile, LNG bunkering requires specialised infrastructure for supply, storage, and fuel delivery to vessels. The predominant method of bunkering today with high-sulphur fuel is vessel to vessel, either by a tank barge or smaller tanker.

The type of infrastructure needed to temporarily store (if needed) and deliver LNG within a given port would depend on the size and location of the port, as well as the types of vessels expected to bunker LNG. Truck to ship bunkering is best suited for supporting smaller and mid-sized vessels, such as ferries or offshore supply vessels (OSVs) that support offshore oil platforms. Liquefaction facilities built on site can provide the greatest capacity of any LNG bunkering option, for example, to provide fuel for large vessels in transoceanic trade. However,
constructing small scale liquefaction facilities to produce and deliver LNG on site requires considerable planning and significant capital investment.

Each type of LNG bunkering may be a viable means to begin services in a port. However, ports may face practical constraints as bunkering increases in scale. For example, a container port of significant size normally has a multitude of terminals, so even with an onsite liquefaction facility, it may need additional infrastructure or supply vessels for moving LNG to other port locations where a cargo ship might be berthed. There may also be port capacity and timing constraints upon the movement of LNG bunkering barges trying to refuel multiple large vessels in various locations around a crowded port.

To date, the LNG bunkering operations already in place or in development are comparatively small, but scale constraints could become a factor as LNG bunkering grows and might require additional bunkering-related port investments.

The Global 2021 LNG Bunkering Experience sets out to explore LNG bunkering on a global scale, utilising the virtual space at our disposal to enhance our attendees’ experience.
