Liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry association SEA\LNG has launched a new free-to-access online tool to improve understanding of the current, and evolving, LNG bunkering infrastructure landscape.
The Bunker Navigator Tool uses member, marine information services, and publicly available data to provide access to the latest developments in the global LNG bunkering infrastructure.
The map-based tool, provides an overview of key LNG bunkering developments; specifically, it shows how the growing infrastructure relates to major global shipping routes, traditional oil bunkering ports, and the bulk LNG infrastructure which will provide the foundation for future bunkering services.
“The coalition’s mission since inception has been to further the shipping industry’s knowledge of the viability and sustainability of LNG as a marine fuel,” says Peter Keller, SEA\LNG chairman and executive vice president.
“A key barrier has been a general lack of understanding of current and forthcoming LNG bunkering infrastructure.
“What we sought to achieve with the Bunker Navigator Tool is a quick, easy-to-access platform that includes relevant, up-to-date, and free-to-access information on LNG infrastructure and bunker development.
“A collaborative approach to understanding the opportunities – and then tackling the associated commercial barriers – to LNG is crucial to fulfil its potential as an alternative to traditional bunker fuels.
“The reality is that LNG bunkering infrastructure is expanding at pace, and with the launch of the Bunker Navigator Tool, SEA\LNG hopes to raise awareness of, and build industry confidence in, the rapidly growing global availability of LNG bunkering.”
