Petrospot launches its fourteenth maritime book, An Introduction to LNG Bunkering, by Nigel Draffin, at this year’s Maritime Week Americas in Miami. This handy sized primer answers the key questions about the use of LNG as a marine fuel and goes a long way towards filling the ‘knowledge gap’ about LNG. It contains many photographs, diagrams, graphs and tables and is written in a clear and easy to read style. The Foreword is written by Mogens Schrøder Bech, Head of Section at the Danish Maritime Authority.
