More than 10% of the world fleet will be powered by LNG by 2030, according to one serious study.  Whether or not this figure is achieved, the focus on LNG as fuel is growing rapidly.  This session will explore what this change means for all the stakeholders in the LNG-as-fuel value chain including designers, shipbuilders and owners/operators and will consider the steps necessary to create an LNG bunkering infrastructure that is ready to meet future demand.
