The Global small scale Liquefied Natural Gas (ssLNG) market is a niche and nascent industry. With increasing pressure on large-scale LNG plants to prove returns to investors, the operating companies are increasingly backing smaller scale LNG initiatives. The small-scale LNG plant with a capacity less than 1 MTPA can be constructed within three years, compared to the large-scale LNG plants, which can take up to 10 years and high capital expenditure (CAPEX). Factors such as the ability to enjoy profits in a shorter time coupled with growing consumption of LNG as a primary energy fuel is supplementing the demand for the uptake of numerous small scale LNG projects across the world. Furthermore, International Maritime Organization (IMO) directive of tighter maritime emission regulation including having a sulfur content of 0.5% or lower from January 1st, 2020 is expected to encourage the growth of small scale LNG projects, during the forecast period, 2018-2023.

Rising Number of LNG Fleet Supplementing the Demand

The regulatory environment encompassing the use of shipping fuel is expected to become more stringent as climate change initiatives build momentum. From January 2020, a new global emissions cap will reduce allowable emissions of sulfur in regions that are not emission control areas (ECAs) from 3.5% to 0.5%. These limits are pushing the maritime industry to implement measures to incorporate more significant use of LNG, which has a far lower sulfur content than diesel as bunker fuel. As of February 2018, the number of LNG-fuelled ships in operation increased to 119, while 125 ships are on order. Furthermore, to promote LNG fueled vehicles, the government in some nations are providing grants and other financial aids. For instance, NOx fund by Norway government offers financial cover by the government for the cost of high investment being faced by the companies to investing in the LNG fuelled ship. Other countries such as France has also pledged to consider similar financial incentives, which is expected to increase the number of LNG fueled ships. To capture the increasing demand for LNG as a shipping fuel, the uptake of small scale LNG projects is expected to witness a significant increase during the forecast period.

Europe to Register Constant Growth in Demand

Europe has always been a pioneer in the implementation of small scale LNG projects across the globe. Stricter regulations on the marine sector and huge subsidies on the use of LNG are stimulating the use of ssLNG as a bunker fuel in Europe. Despite sustained low oil prices and market uncertainty, there has been a significant increase of small scale LNG projects in the region. With LNG becoming increasingly cost competitive, the drive for cleaner fuel gathering pace and the desire for energy companies to expand and diversify their LNG businesses, investors in the European region are becoming alive to the potential for small scale LNG projects.

Singapore to Offer Increased Demand

The Singapore Government has been working jointly with industry players to advance the nation as a regional hub for small scale development. There has been a positive response for the small scale from the local harbor craft industry, and LNG-fuelled tugboats and bunker tankers delivering conventional fuels, which are expected to be operational from 2018. In 2017, Singapore LNG Corporation (SLNG) has successfully performed its first small scale LNG reload at its terminal on Jurong Island. Similar small scale projects are expected to increase in the country to promote Singapore as a regional hub catering to the growing demand for LNG in the Asia-Pacific region.
