U.S. LNG bunkering market is predicted to exceed 3,000 kilotons by 2024 owing to the advent of shale gas. Increasing liquefaction plants has spurred the production of liquefied natural gas in the U.S. enabling its adoption as marine fuel. Strict government norms against emissions will further complement the business landscape. In 2015, the EPA implemented the MARPOL Annex VI norms with an aim to limit NOx in marine fuel oil to 0.5% from current levels.
Rising environmental concerns along with government initiatives towards adoption of natural gas as ship fuel will augment the LNG bunkering market. The EU introduced Climate and Energy Package 2020, with an aim to achieve 20% reduction in GHG emissions. In 2014, Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) announced funding of USD 138 million towards the development of seven bunkering stations across Western Europe.
Shifting trends towards low-cost and eco-friendly marine fuel will drive the LNG bunkering market size. LNGe-380 is comparatively less expensive than IFO-380 fuel that help companies to recover the cost of retrofitting fleets. Positive outlook towards maritime trade along with rising investments toward the deployment of floating liquefied natural gas will further complement the industry outlook. In 2016, Petronas invested USD 1.16 billion for FLNG project in Malaysia with a capacity of 1.2 mtpa.
