LNG

LNG stands for Liquified Natural Gas, i.e. a natural gas that has been cooled down at -163°C (−260 °F) to liquid form, reducing the volume by about 625 times compared to its gas state. The liquefaction makes it easier and safer to transport and store.

LNG as a Marine Fuel: According to an independent study report commissioned by SEA\LNG and SGMF and published in April 2019, LNG generates almost zero sulfur and particulate emissions and contributes to a reduction of up to 21% of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions Well-to-Wake (WtW) when compared to current, conventional, oil-based marine fuels.
