LNG Bunkering Regulations Toolkit

LNG Bunkering Regulations

Guidance for LNG Bunkering Regulations

At the forefront of the global gas market, the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) published a guidance document as part of a landmark study addressing the bunkering of the first LNG fueled vessels in North America. As part of the study, ABS Group helped identify the safety and risk factors, create a regulatory framework and compile lessons learned from the first adopters of LNG as a fuel in North America.

To assist owners and operators of LNG assets as they navigate North American requirements, ABS Group has developed a toolkit combining regulatory insights with the following information tools and resources.
