The Chapter addresses the international legal regime governing shipboard LNG which could be carried on board as cargo or fuel. The discussion touches upon both the regulatory law element as well as the private law dimension of the regime. On the regulatory side of the discussion, the focus is placed on the Sulphur 2020 Initiative of IMO, the IGC Code and the IGF Code; and on the private law side of the discussion, the HNS Convention is the focal point. A brief discussion is also provided on the LNG implications of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from ships. In the Concluding Remarks it is noted somewhat disappointingly that current statistics and relevant information point to the less than enthusiastic posture of shipowners to switch to using LNG as fuel in the foreseeable future.
