LNG and Future Fuels: Likely impact on cost and operational considerations
13:45 - 14:25
LNG as a fuel for ships is one of the options to comply with the 2020 global sulphur cap regulations. Our panel will consider the pros and cons in relation to other compliance solutions, including switching to low sulphur
fuel or fitting a scrubber with the ability to burn HFO. This discussion will focus on life cycle costs, and some key technical and operational aspects.
