The long awaited ISO Technical Specification of LNG bunkering was published on June 6th on the International Association of Oil & Gas producers’ (OGP) website for review. The document has been developed by an international committee of experts with representatives from classifications societies, LNG suppliers, flag states, equipment suppliers, shipping companies etc.
Johan Algell of White Smoke Consulting represents Sweden in the committee. The importance of the document is yet to be seen but it has been requested by many. If well received it will, together with the forthcoming IGF code, have the ability to fill the regulatory gap identified and become a major contribution to the development of LNG as the future main fuel for shipping.
