Natural Gas is a clean, eco-friendly fuel which has good heating ability (calorific value) and offers greater fuel efficiency when used for domestic or industrial purposes. The boom in transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has led to rapid expansion in the LNG trade and the number of LNG ships carrying this cargo. Trained crew members are in high demand for vessels engaged in LNG trade.
