The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) is hosting a series of seminars for shipowners and operators evaluating the long-term potential, technical and operational challenges and opportunities for gas as a marine fuel.

One-day events have already been held in Busan (Korea), Guangzhou (China), Singapore and Yokohama (Japan), with the next series of seminars due to take place in Europe in Hong Kong.

During the upcoming seminars, ABS's Global Gas team will be discussing market trends and ongoing projects; regulations and environmental emissions impact; fuel containment, gas supply systems and engine options; benefits, challenges and risk mitigations facing early adopters; LNG bunkering and simultaneous operations; plus flag state acceptance.

"The marine industry is evaluating how to address rapidly changing energy markets against a backdrop of increasing environmental regulation. The regulatory shift combined with uncertainty in conventional liquid fuel pricing has made alternate fuels such as LNG a viable option for many in the industry," said ABS Vice President of Global Gas Solutions, Patrick Janssens.

"As a global leader in gas, with extensive experience with real-world applications of LNG as a marine fuel, ABS is well qualified to help meet the technical and operational challenges involved in implementing LNG as a fuel source in a vessel or fleet," he added.

Seiya Tatsuno, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) Chief, Ocean Development and Environment Policy Division, Maritime Bureau, remarked: "LNG will be the fuel of choice for many in the marine industry as we move into the next decade. ABS, through practical experience and comprehensive guidance, is helping industry advance new gas as fuel concepts and projects that will ultimately promote a safer and more sustainable shipping industry."
