The shipping industry is facing increasing claims to meet restricted environmentalregulations and escalating operation costs. To mitigate these problems, cleaner andmore cost-effective fuels are required to power the new generation of vessels.Currently, the high speed ferry sector is using lightweight diesel engines burningdistillate fuels. However, the increasing demand for higher installed power requirement in such vessels, coupled with fuel costs, has placed further constraints onthis sector (Bennett 2011). Liquefied natural gas (LNG), which meets these newrequirements, is now becoming popular as an alternative fuel in this sector.Liquefied natural gas is obtained through natural gas liquefaction by cooling itto approximately 162 °C at atmospheric pressure. This process reduces the volumeapproximately 600 times; hence, it is more competent for transportation and storagecompared to conventional hydrocarbon fuels (Ramos et al. 2014).
