MARINE
FUELS

LPG is increasingly used in marine engines used in small leisure crafts, fishing boat, patrol boats and smaller cargo vessels.
It is an efficient marine fuel, reduces emission and eliminates the risk of fuels spills. Engine manufacturers, shipbuilders as well as owners and operators are also adopting LPG as fuel for large ships and VLGSs (very large gas carriers). On 1st January 2020, a global regulation that will substantially reduce harmful sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions from ships came into effect. It set an upper limit on the sulphur content of ships’ fuel oil to be reduced to 0.50% (from 3.50%). This new regulation has prompted ship owners and operators to look into cleaner alternative fuels. For many types of ships, LPG is the perfect solution because of its global availability and low emissions.

LPG is easier and less expensive
to store than LNG

This solves the LNG logistics problem, LPG is already accessible in ports across the globe and new terminals can be built faster at lower cost.

In countries where LPG is used for other applications LPG
emits less

LPG is more cost-effective & less sensitive to fuel scenarios

LPG is much cleaner than HFO and ULSFO and other fuels that it replaces.

The spatial distribution of LPG storage facilities favours LPG over LNG

LPG can rely on an extensive existing global infrastructure - including more LPG terminals built in the US to cover increased demand for competitively priced LPG.
