Shipping figures debated LNG's role as a shipping fuel as methane came under increasing fire during the COP26 climate conference.

At an International Chamber of Shipping (ICS)-organised event in Glasgow, major vessel operators defended LNG fuelling as a way to take action now to reduce greenhouse gas emissions before lower-carbon and zero-carbon fuels become more widely available.

They also highlighted the ability to use biomethane or e-methane in the vessels.
