These results demonstrate that many of the challenges faced within the LNG Bunkering market have
remained consistent throughout the past few years, such as the availability of infrastructure and the cost
to develop it. It is encouraging to see that just 50% of respondents now think that the price volatility will
be a hindrance to the expansion of LNG Bunkering worldwide, down from 83% in 2017.

Looking forwards, Europe is still seen as the region which will drive the industry forward, although recent
reports suggest that LNG demand growth in Asia is set to rise in the coming year. With 89% and 68% of
respondents believing the LNG will become a widespread fuel for short and deep sea shipping respectively,
the use of LNG as the fuel of choice throughout the shipping supply chain globally looks set to continue.

The Annual LNG Bunkering Summit will be spread over three days and focus on the entire supply chain,
offering insights into decision making, planning, development, operation, safety and training processes
that will help ensure the market continues to accelerate. Find out more about this event on the next page.
