News Source: topco Writer:  Published:2015-8-6

As a clean energy, natural gas is being valued by increasing countries and authorized Organizations. Gas will be a reasonable option to resolve emissionsfor Ship owners in coming years forced by new rules and policies from IMO and government bodies. Gas utilization will be expected to expand, which will stimulate the requirements for LNG carriers and LNG fueled ships.

As the largest energy consumer, China is facing serious environmental problems. In order to deal with these concerns, Chinese government is making more stringent laws on environment and air pollution and will invest over one trillion RMB on them. Transportation is an important industry involved in energy saving and emissions reducing. The subsidy from China MOT is one billion a year now, rising at a high rate every year. A new building LNG fueled ship will have access to apply up to RMB 1400, 000 from government. Rising consumption and utilization of gas will stimulate the requirements for LNG carriers too in future.

The 3rd Topco LNG Carriers & LNG Fueled Vessels Assembly is a good platform and opportunity for learning, exchanging, and networking with over 300 industry peers.
