  15. 15. Technical Solution Training needs RINA - Lloydlist Safety first in the dash for gas Monday 25 July 2011, 16:53 As more vessel types take up the cost and environmental benefits of gas-powered shipping, it is becoming increasingly important that crew are trained properly in its use. GAS-fuelled ships are one way forward to reduce air emissions. But in the dash for gas we must ensure that lower emissions don't mean less safety. Carrying and using gas at sea requires a culture that is present on gas carriers, but which is not found on most other ship types. We need to take great care when we extend gas power to other ship types. Substantial changes are needed to the structure and outfit of the vessel, and the crew need to be trained to understand the new fuel and its risks.
  16. 16. Training needs Logistic scenario A13 – I13 Lack of skilled seafarers Depending on the number of LNG propelled ships in 2020/2030 the number of seafarers can be (…) a significant fraction of the more than 1,2 millions seafarers demanded in 2020 (…). The likelihood of the issue not to be solved is judged low since it will be demand driven and passage to LNG will occur gradually. The direct impact of not having the necessary workforce trained is high since it directly affects the possibility to safely operate LNG fuelled ships. The possibility to manage the issue is judged high since training programmes can be established in due time before 2020. Aspects related to this issue are: - lack of training infrastructures - training of ashore personnel

  23. 23. Financial Issue Actual context The market currently does not exist An effective mechanism to create such a market is needed The capital involved has to cover investments for : • new LNG fuelled Fleet • existing ship retrofit • logistic infrastructures Not all existing infrastructures are fit to serve the LNG ship related market
  24. 24. Logistic Scenario Market start up Four Main Actors Shipowners New buildings & retrofits Shipbuilders & Makers Strategic view Regulations Authorizations Governmental Authorities Gas supply & pricing Infrastructure develop. Management of logistic Gas providers
  25. 25. LNG price Financial Issues Price highly dependent on the considered country. Difference: from 3 to 19 $/MMBtu. However… The difference between U.S. and Asian gas is poised to drop by more than 60 percent by 2020. Source Bloomberg Jan 2013
  26. 26. LNG price Financial Issues 650 USD/t (=15.3 USD/mmBTU) for HFO. 900 USD/t (=21.2 USD/mmBTU) for MGO. 13 USD/mmBTU for LNG (considering 4 USD/mmBTU + small scale distribution costs).
  27. 27. Social Perception  LNG is flammable  LNG is dangerously cold  LNG is clean YES but Not In My Back Yard
  28. 28. Social Perception Transparent communication on real facts • Overall, the LNG industry has an excellent safety record • LNG has been safely delivered across the ocean for – over 40 years – over 45,000 LNG carrier voyages – more than 100 million miles, without major accidents or safety problems either in port or on the high seas.
  29. 29. Social Perception Some countries have already solved the NIMBY issue
