The report is divided into three parts. Part One provides a detailed overview of the technology for utilising LNG as a transport fuel in each sector, and considers the key economic and environmental drivers for the adoption of LNG as a transport fuel. Part Two builds on this foundation to analyse the potential growth of LNG in transportation over the period 2014 to 2035, and Part Three provides detailed data and analysis on key markets for LNG in transportation.
Part One is sub-divided in four chapters. Chapter One describes the Global LNG supply chain, reviewing the interaction between the existing LNG industry and infrastructure, and the potential utilisation of LNG in transportation. Chapter Two reviews the utilisation of LNG in the shipping sector, including the different storage and refuelling technologies, and impact of MARPOL and the establishment of Emissions Control Areas (ECAs), and the economic drivers for LNG. Chapter Three reviews the utilisation of LNG in the road transport sector, including analysis of the engine types, the choice between CNG and LNG (as well as diesel) for HGVs and other vehicles, and the key economic and environmental drivers. Chapter Four considers the potential use of LNG in the rail sector, including engine and refuelling technologies, competition with diesel and electric power and key drivers.
Part Two addresses the question of the size of the potential market for LNG as a transport fuel in two ways. Firstly, it provides the CEDIGAZ view of LNG usage in each of the marine, road and rail sectors by modelling future LNG usage based on an analysis of the data available. Secondly, it undertakes a review of various public domain projections made by stakeholders for each these sectors. As a result of this dual analysis it is possible to produce a range of projections for future LNG usage in the marine, road and rail transport sectors over the period 2015-2035. Finally, Part Two of this report concludes by combining the CEDIGAZ analysis of LNG usage in the different sub-sectors in order to produce an aggregated range of LNG usage projections for the transport sector as a whole for the period 2015 to 2035.
Part Three provides detailed data (at the extent that is available) on use and infrastructure for LNG in transportation for 46 countries around the world. Part Three is sub-divided into chapters covering each region. Within the chapters there is a regional summary of facilities and prospects for LNG in transport, and then country by country analysis of the potential LNG market, bulk LNG supplies (including a list of LNG terminal facilities), and LNG filling stations, operational and proposed.
