Below are some of the questions addressed within this LR paper: would you see yourself a driver of changes with regard to the use of the liquid natural gas as a fuel? today, is your port providing or at least planning to provide the infrastructure for LNG bunkering for the short-sea or local shipping? in July 2011, the IAPH (standing for the International Association of Ports and Harbours) launched a new project of developing guidelines for the LNG bunkering in ports, so does is your port participate in the project? what bunkering facilities (of what type) are currently provided in your Port for gas fuelled ships - or, if there are no such facilities at the moment, what are you planning to provide in the future? what is the timeframe for LNG bunkering operations to begin at your port? what are the anticipated sources of fuel for LNG bunkering and in what volumes will the fuel be provided? what kind of infrastructure are planned to be developed in your port for LNG fuel supply to the port? what will be the expected proportion of the gas fuel of the total volume in your port? in general, would you be considering the liquid gas as a bunker fuel for deep-sea shipping in the next years? which type of ships would you think to be best suited for such bunkering at your port and why?
