Industry coalition SEA-LNG has slammed a report by the World Bank that advises authorities to steer away from policies that support the use of LNG as a marine fuel.

The group's sharp reaction came after the bank released The Role of LNG in the Transition Toward Low- and Zero-Carbon Shipping, which argues that LNG should play a “limited” rather than a “transitional” role in the decarbonisation of marine fuelling.
