Regulation, Technology and Supply Chain Development to Drive LNG as the Fuel of the Future
It certainly is an exciting time for the LNG industry with 2018 arguably being the tipping point for the sector. New LNG infrastructure became operational, and with further projects in the pipeline, LNG as a marine fuel has seen more traction with new recent news suggesting that LNG fuelled vessels are set to double by 2020.
Whilst the news is extremely positive, the industry must continue to collaborate and develop supply chain partnerships that will help accelerate the use of LNG Globally.
Now in its 7th year, the Annual LNG Bunkering Summit will be spread over three days and focus on the entire supply chain, offering insights into decision making, planning, development, operation, safety and training processes that are driving the LNG Bunkering market forward.
