LNG Marine Fuel Institute

Mike Utsler, Chief Operations Officer of Woodside Energy

Fremantle Ports made history last year by granting the first liquefied natural gas bunkering licence in Australia, allowing ships with gas-powered engines to load up on fuel.

The port authority should be applauded for taking this step, which is in sync with global developments and will deliver local benefits by supporting the uptake of a cleaner fuel that can lead to improved air quality.

A quiet revolution is occurring in international shipping in the lead-up to 2020, when all ships will need to comply with a 0.5 per cent limit on the sulphur content of fuel, down from the current 3.5 per cent.
