LNG bunkering – Interview: Mark Bell, general manager, Society for Gas as Marine Fuel

The use of LNG as marine fuel has made considerable inroads in the passenger shipping segment in recent years but has yet to gain a solid foothold in the rest of the maritime industry, with only 0.2% of the world’s fleet currently LNG-fuelled. However, public discourse on the merits of using LNG as bunker fuel is gaining momentum, especially since October 2016, when the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) –  the shipping industry’s regulator – announced it will impose a 0.5% global sulphur cap on marine emissions in 2020. LNG Business Review met Mark Bell, general manager of the London-based Society for Gas as Marine Fuel (SGMF), to discuss what lies ahead for LNG bunkering.
