Generally, developments so far reflect our view of a likely trajectory for gas-fuelled investment: take-up is mainly by niche or specialised trades, trades located in emission control areas (ECAs) and point-to-point traders predominantly in ECAs, such as ferries and small containership operators.“It is exciting to see how fast the marine industry in North America is turning to LNG – few would have predicted this a few years ago. Now it will be interesting to see how quickly gas as fuel will develop in the deep sea trades.”Lloyd’s Register, November 28, 2013last_img
