SEA-LNG CHAIRMAN SAYS "NO UTOPIAN SOLUTION" TO DECARBONISATION

Thursday, August 27, 2020 

Peter Keller, Chairman of SEA-LNG, a multi-sector industry coalition advocating LNG as a marine fuel throughout the entire value chain, says the organisation has published its latest study, offering an in-depth insight into LNG as a marine fuel and its pathway for the shipping industry’s decarbonisation.

The report outlines how SEA-LNG considers LNG as a marine fuel to be the only viable option for shipping to reach IMO 2030. It argues that LNG-fuelled vessels are “zero-emissions on the water today” as they offer a clear route to IMO 2050 thanks to carbon-free liquefied bio-methane which can be easily adopted by LNG-fuelled vessels and LNG infrastructure.

Keller comments that the debate is fast descending into “my solution versus your solution”, and waiting for a “utopian solution” risks locking the maritime industry into highly polluting conventional oil-based marine fuels for years, if not decades, to come. The report offers an insight into the state of play regarding LNG as a marine fuel. It highlights the promising role that modern dual-fuel engines’ can play in accelerating decarbonisation while countering the points surrounding methane slip.
