A systematic literature review on port LNG bunkering station

With the increasing use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel in shipping industry, the construction of port LNG bunkering stations is becoming a new requirement for the development of port. As the port LNG bunkering station is still an emerging field in the research, there are few evaluations on this field yet. This paper provides a systematic literature review and proposes the future directions. Based on the analysis of 100 papers, the related researches are divided into five aspects: LNG bunkering network planning, general layout of LNG bunkering stations, scheme design of LNG bunkering stations, risk management of LNG bunkering stations, and LNG promotion strategy formulation in shipping industry. For the analysis of existing research results, it is concluded that the global LNG bunkering network planning, LNG bunkering method selection, risks quantification, safety evaluation, and incentive policies formulation need further studies.
