Shore-to-Ship

Another bunkering method is shore-ship, whereby LNG is either bunkered directly from an (intermediary) tank or small station, or from an import or export terminal. Pipelines from the terminal to the quay are needed if the LNG terminal is not directly situated at the berth.

 

Advantages

 

Shore-ship bunkering is generally a good option for ports with stable, long-term bunkering demand, especially in the case of co-use of LNG by other consumers. Because the pipeline and the loading arm arrangement are fixed, a larger hose can be installed to increase the bunkering rate (up to 3,000 l/min), leading to significantly shorter bunkering times.
