LNG as a ship’s fuel can reportedly reduce CO2 by 25 per cent to 30 per cent compared to heavy fuel oil and significantly reduce Sulphur oxides (SOx) and Nitrogen oxides (NOx).

MOL Group has three LNG bunkering vessels that supply LNG fuel to key bunkering ports across the world.

Recently, MOL announced the signing of a long-term charter contract with a vessel operation management firm funded by JERA Co., Inc. (JERA) for a newbuilding LNG carrier.
