The objective of this sub-activity is to identify possible LNG sourcing options, possible supply chain scenarios with regard to their costs and quality levels and to evaluate the options against each other as well towards the current fuel options. Cost scenarios for identified LNG supply chain options will be part of the work of this sub-activity. The outcome, especially with regard to the retail price of LNG will be an important input for the “LNG Demand Analysis” as price is the decisive factor for the magnitude of potential demand and for the cost-effectiveness of any investment in LNG propelled vessels. The foreseen work will analyse the present oil scenario supply patterns, modal shift implications and suitable locations in line with the expected LNG scenario bunkering patterns. Besides cost aspects, also the environmental impact of different supply scenarios as well as safety related consequences will be investigated.
