LNG bunkers discussed at Port Canaveral briefing

Briefing led by US Federal Maritime Commissioner William Doyle on the use of LNG as a marine fuel.





Updated on 11 Aug 2017 12:38 GMT

Port Canaveral has hosted a briefing led by US Federal Maritime Commissioner (FMC) William Doyle regarding the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a maritime transportation fuel.

Doyle provided a briefing on the most recent international regulatory activity, including the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) upcoming global 0.5 percent cap on the sulphur content of marine fuel in 2020.

Attendees at the discussion included Port Canaveral leadership, staff, port partners and tenants, representatives of the U.S. Coast Guard, Brevard County Sheriff's Office, Canaveral Fire Rescue, and Canaveral Pilots Association.

"We know that natural gas is one of the cleanest, most environmentally-friendly fuels available today," said Port CEO Captain John Murray. "We wanted better understanding of LNG as a maritime fuel, as well as best practices globally to support vessels powered with natural gas."

FMC Doyle has spoken extensively in support for natural gas as a marine fuel. Back in 2014, Bunker Index covered his speech in favour of the use of LNG at the All About Marine Conference and Expo, where he explained that the U.S. has "plenty" of LNG for marine fuel as the world's largest LNG producer.

Doyle has been a vocal proponent of the development of U.S. natural gas resources and its impact on the U.S. energy and transportation landscape in helping to improve U.S. energy security while spurring economic development and job creation around the country.
