Around 10% of the world’s ships could be using LNG as a marine fuel by 2040, S&P Global Platts reported Armelle Breneol, a marine fuel technical adviser for ExxonMobil in Europe, as saying on Thursday.

Fewer than 300,000 vessels will be using scrubbers and no more than 300 vessels will be fuelled by LNG at the start of 2020, Breneol told delegates at a bunkering conference in Rotterdam.
