Small inroads: LNG bunkering in the Baltic Sea

The use of LNG as marine fuel in the Baltic Sea region has seen little increase since January 2015, when the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) imposed stricter controls on airborne emissions from ships operating in the region.

At first sight, LNG bunkering in Northern Europe seems to have a long way to go, but could these recent developments point towards it finally taking off at some point in the future?
