Gas, CNG: Speeding approval for gas-to-market technologies. William J Sember. Petroleum Review July 2004, P. 30-31, 36
As an alternative to LNG technology, CNG offers economically viable and competitive methods of rapidly monetising natural gas in short-haul trades or certain geographic locations, according to William J Sember, ABS Vice President of Energy Development. In recognition of this, ABS recently published new guidance notes for building and classing ships carrying CNG that will facilitate CNG industry development by providing a comprehensive framework of reference material while identifying acceptable methodologies for achieving class society approval of new CNG technologies.
