Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Bunkering Market Drivers & Restraints, 2025

Global Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Bunkering Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.5% from 2017 to 2025.


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/13/2018 -- Liquefied natural gas is a colorless, odorless, and noncorrosive gas which is obtained by converting natural gas to the liquid form. The reason for conversion to LNG is that the transportation of natural gas is difficult. LNG takes up 1/1600th of the total volume of natural gas, when it is in its natural form. As the fuel is clean and emission-free, its consumption as a bunker fuel has increased. LNG bunkering is a preferable choice for shipping companies that operate in the Emission Control Areas (ECAs).
