LNG/LBG at sea and on land

Liquefied natural gas and biogas can replace oil and coal in the transport sector and in industry where it is not possible to connect to the gas grid. 

LNG is particularly well-suited to shipping, which requires large volumes of fuel. Since 2015, shipping has faced stricter stipulations following the introduction of the EU Sulphur Directive. The Directive stipulates that within SECA (Sulphur Emission Control Area), which comprises the Baltic, the North Sea and the English Channel, the sulphur content of marine fuels must not exceed 0.1 per cent. With LNG as fuel, the sulphur content is virtually zero.

Natural gas is also an alternative for heavy land transport that is looking to switch to a more eco-friendly fuel.

LNG is in demand among industrial companies that are transitioning to natural gas. LNG can be used as a processing fuel and as a raw material. It is simple to handle and it is safe, competitive, and more environmentally friendly than oil and coal. The transition to natural gas will allow many companies to achieve their environmental objectives more quickly.
