The new issue of Ship Technology Global magazine is out now!
LNG is one of the key alternative fuels whose market size is rising rapidly across the globe. The Middle East has been relatively slow to adapt to this trend, despite being a powerhouse of oil and gas reserves, but now it is seeking to catch up. In this issue, we look at the development of bunkering infrastructure in the region.

Next issue preview
We’ve got less than three decades to reach net zero – is this truly doable, and if so, how? Next issue, we ask: what does the adoption of the 2023 IMO Greenhouse Gas Strategy mean for the marine industry?
Low carbon fuels, in particular hydrogen, methanol and ammonia, will surely play a role in the shift to net zero, but there will be challenges in building the necessary infrastructure to make these viable. Which fuel type will come out top, or will the future be multi-fuel?
