LNG Cargo Operations

Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) is a clean, eco-friendly fuel which has good heating ability (calorific value) and offers greater fuel efficiency when used for domestic or industrial purposes. The worldwide share of LNG trade has increased from 6% in 1970 to over 30% today. This boom has led to rapid expansion in the LNG trade and the number of LNG ships carrying this cargo. Highly skilled and highly trained crew members are in demand…now.
