Webinar description:

Clean-burning, domestically produced LNG can help marine vessels cost-effectively meet emissions control area (ECA) compliance standards. With the large cost spread between bunker fuel and near-record-low natural gas prices projected to continue, new engines coming to the market, and advancements in LNG fueling, the case for a transition to natural gas has never been more compelling. Fueling with LNG can help save vessel operators millions of dollars over the operating life of the vessel.

Learn about:

  • How LNG can help you meet emissions control area (ECA) compliance regulations
  • The latest advancements in LNG supply and bunkering for ports
  • Technical considerations for putting an LNG tank on a marine vessel
