B.C. backs proposal for liquefied natural gas ship refueling facility
proposal to build the first ship-to-ship liquefied natural gas marine refueling service along the west coast of North America is getting support from the British Columbia government.
A statement from the premier’s office says replacing diesel fuel with LNG has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from marine shipping by at least 20 per cent.
The province is contributing $25,000 to a study to examine the competitive, environmental and social impact of LNG marine refueling, also known as bunkering.
